Built and designed a videowall and video material for these two excellent performances at the Reaktor Katharsis 2020 streaming event.
This week I started with a residency at STEIM in Amsterdam. The 15.3 Pentacle soundsystem developed by Fedde Ten Berge is installed here and I’m going to prepare a live performance for it. I’m really amazed by working with a powerful multispeaker soundsystem like this, the amplification is on par with soundsystems installed in clubs. It is also very intuitive in its use.
There was this nice gathering of people, music making machines and soup. You can find some musical evidence here on Bandcamp if you need. My own performance is under the monniker of Rowe.
Yesterday was a magical night! The composition turned out great, and so did the other pieces of my fellow @destaandegolf composers! Thanks everybody for dropping by, means a lot to me and all of of us!!
Recently I got an invitation from Tim Walther to come over with my modular and make a demovideo with the Timetosser he developed. This device matches perfectly with the beats I normally make.
In short, it is a delay device with a delay comparable to the one in the Elektron Octatrack, but obviously more compact and in my opinion more intuitive and flexible. It needs some learning, but this the results make it worth while.
I hope that I can integrate it into my live performance setup.
Some months ago, I did a 15 minute performance with Ableton, eurorack modular and a Waldorf Blofeld. It was the first time I combined these tools into a hybrid setup to get the most out of my hardware, and to achieve the productional level I desire. Enjoy!
Together with Julius van IJperen en Dirge Seçil Kuran at the Speelklok Museum, Utrecht. Here we performed an intro piece for the presentation of the Cultuurstelsel. This is an advice on the policy of the Council for Culture to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science for the period of 2021 to 2024.
I was invited to do a modular performance at the opening event of the Willem Twee Studios in Den Bosch.
