The Pipe Barabashka – Everyday Daemons

catfishUnlike their larger common cousins, pipe barabashka are small and mostly benevolent. They live in household pipes, swimming from room to room. They get very excited when the temperature changes, and can often be heard knocking out an ancient ritual form of stochastic minimal techno on the pipes in celebration of someone turning the heating on or off again.

This everyday daemon is documented as part of a contribution to the Hannah Festival 2014 Directory launch week.
