After a lot of hard work we finally got to unveil Ethno Tekh Performance v.2 at Enigmatik Vibrations last week.
This version is built to fit onto a smaller screen and has been extended to 20 minutes which is broken into 2 tracks, ” Tekhnology ” and ” All Frequencies “. It was a mad rush to get it all done in time and we missed out on a few planned features for this one. There’s not quite as much visual fluidity as we had planned between instruments, but that didn’t seem to phase the crowd who seemed to absolutely love it. It was some of the most positive and vocal feedback either Brad or I have ever had for a gig before and it was very encouraging to see other people really enjoying our hard work.
It was an honor to get a great slot in such a tight line up of top notch producers tearing the place apart with mad textural glitch, twisting psy breaks and the fat chunk that Grouch always brings. Would love to say a big thank you to Enig’matik Records, particularly Jake Rose ( Sun In Aquarius ) for supporting our ideas from the ground up and giving us the opportunity and the audience to share our creativity with.
Here’s a short teaser of our live A/V performance system currently under development by us (Ethno Tekh). We’ll be releasing many more videos in the near future, including more performances with much high recording quality (apologies for this one), as well as interviews with both Brad and I outlining and discussing our project and approach.
For the moment, please enjoy the very first video featuring our new system!
I’ve recently teamed up with visual artist and programmer Brad Hammond (XY01) for our project Ethno Tekh. We’ve been slamming it hard and since we’ve teamed up in early August we’ve already had our first public interactive installation ‘public override Trichild()‘, which was a great success, as well as our first performance to an audience of over 3000 people at Microsoft’s TechEd 2012.
We’re focusing on real-time, interactive and generative digital artworks; as well as larger-than-life and futuristic bass music A/V performances, all performed completely live using motion capture and audio-reactive visuals.
Video of the TechEd performance coming soon, but for now, there’s these couple of photo. But head to the Ethno Tekh Facebook page to keep updated on the project. We’ve got some interesting stuff coming up.
Here’s a video from our debut interactive installation ‘public override Trichild()’:
