Supersonic Festival Live Set

Here is a recording of the live laptop performance  I gave at SOUNDkitchen’s Cinema For The Ears on 23rd October 2011. The event was part of the Supersonic Festival in Birmingham.

I was working with field recordings and prepared material that was predominantly noise based and experimented for the first time with presenting this material over multiple channels live. Running Ableton Live I had 8 independent outputs mapped onto a circle of 8 speakers in the space and an additional stereo submix on another two channels going to the desk to be diffused over the whole system by SOUNDkitchen’s Annie Mahtani. It was quite an effective and manageable way of working, allowing me some control of the spatialisation of material in addition to the structure.

This is a stereo reduction of the 10 channel set that was played over a multi-channel speaker system courtesy of BEAST.
