It doesn’t always go to plan…

So, after a run of gigs I was 100% happy with, i had my first duff one… not a disaster, but the PA at FrogFest last weekend wasn’t really doing the job, and the projector had to be set up quickly which meant I couldn’t really take full advantage of the tent-canvas. So instead of the space-ambient-epicness I’d planned, I performed a rather brutal distorted powernoise version of the songs, sounding like Alec Empire in a particularly bad mood. The highlight for me was hitting the bass frequency that caused beer-glasses to explode (sorry Dan!)…

Anyway,  I previewed a new track which I wrote for the occasion, called (somewhat prophetically) Improbable Machine and it’s a glimpse into a sort of film score / glitch direction that I’m hoping to explore a bit with new work. Then, because I was a bit frustrated people didn’t get to hear it as i intended, I recorded a version of it, and captured the visuals too, so here it is:

 

Anyway, onwards and upwards – the next temp0rary gig will be at the 2 Pigs, Cheltenham at the Project Bleephaus stage for OxJam, with a whole bunch of awesome electronics, and with my crew McLees and Giddings helping out on A/V respectively…
