Here's me playing live with a C64 and a delay pedal, with live video processing by Zden. It happened at Demobit in Bratislava where I was supposed to be in person but "due to circumstances" was unable to attend. So I streamed the video/sound, which partly explains the dodgy quality.
The performance was made without any preparations. I start an empty tracker and make the instruments and all the music on the fly.
I'll play some C64 ambient at Datastorm in Gothenburg on Saturday morning, as the poor demosceners are refuelling with breakfast. I will improvise from scratch with nothing but defMON and a delay pedal, and also over recordings of previous improvisations. I do the best improvisations, so this improvisation will be double best. Truly great.
So, Datastorm is one of the most popular Amiga/8-bit demoscene parties around. Tickets sold out in three minutes this time! So if you don't have a ticket already, you will have to try to run past the notoriously hard 1337 entrance guards who can crack your life, in order to catch all the good stuff.
Stay safe out there.
In this blog post I linked to the live jam I did at Soundpond in Adelaide a while ago. I arrived really late and completely unprepaired, but I think it turned out alright anyway. I used three songs as the base (Ponky Super Dub Edit, Linkan, Oso) and re-arranged them live and programmed new bits on the fly.
I borrowed Tim Koch's SX-64 and his effect pedal so I had a nice setup to play with. Sorry for shocking the drum n' bass heads listening to Soundpond before I got on hehe.
But now this recording is not available anymore.
A while ago I made an improvised live-set where people could tell me what to do, by filling in a form. It's like the live-performed version of the more asynchronous previous Dataslav performance. And more abstract. Or concrete, maybe?
I made two 30-minute sets and the second one was documented by Jacob Remin, so here it is for you (wav). The forms below are time-stamped, so you can sort of follow how they influenced the music. If you understand Danish, that is. Which everyone does.
These two movies are screening today on the 21st of October. The first one about the American activist Aaron Swartz who in his fight for internet freedom ran out of steam and ended his own life. The other movie is by Geraldine Juárez and portrays the Bureau for Piracy's wild kopimi style. After these, I will do an improvised C64 show.
The event is organized by Doc Lounge Göteborg and happens at Bengans.
