Here's a video of me and Kodek performing at Erica Synths Garage last weekend (about 68 minutes in). It definitely has its moments, thanks to zero preparations. Don't miss the performances by BR Laser and Jacob Remin earlier in the same clip! Okay?
Last weekend I was in the Netherlands to play at the X'2018 C64 fiesta, and the lovely Gifgrond in Tilburg. I played a fully improvised set, where I start completely from scratch and make all the instruments and composingz as I go along.
Yeah I Know It Sucks had some very nice things to say about my performance. This approach was so unique and friendly, totally unique and exposed; where normally a lot of electronic musicians hide behind their desk, Goto80 showed the polar opposite. [..] He had nothing to hide, didn’t come out all the way from Sweden to play a game of digital patience or check out his emails; he sincerely laid himself and his music process bare, naked in front of you with astonishing music as a result.
Thanks for that! Feels particularly pleasing since I'm working on an album of C64-improvs at the moment. That will be out next year, after I release another album that I'm working on...
So many albums, so little shirbums.
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.
