<>TAG concert

Last night I performed at <>TAG with Martin T├ętrault: 2 solos and 1 duo. A very interesting mix, thanks to <>TAG's music curator Keir Neuringer. Amazing how close our soundworld is, looking at the very different means to create it. Martin uses a boxed turntable that already before the concert looks like it's falling apart, with some effect units and a couple of broken records. In his music he seems to be constantly looking for accidental sounds, generated by trowing records onto the player, amplifying a click in the mixer, boosting that hidden buzz. Very alike my work, which happens in the digital domain. Searching through samples, finding the right spot in pitch and position, and keeping it alive long enough to give it space.
Well, now I start rambling... blah blah
