Glitch live at Gallery de la Catessen

Last thursday, the Glitch Collective played live for the first time at Luke Altmann's space, Gallery de la Catessen. Partcipants included Tyrell Blackburn, Glenn Brokenshire, Marco Gibardcher, Christian Haines, Tony Marshall, Tristan Louth-Robins, Lauren Sutter, Sebastian Tomczak and Damian West.

It was in a 'classic' format; each person brought a blindly prepared one minute cd-r. Everybody put their CD players on REPEAT and started theirs at the same time. This was played for about twenty minutes.

I was very happy with the outcome- it was like an entire geology made up of sound, with widely varying areas. Tectonic plates would shift, sometimes causing friction and other times allowing more subtle sounds to come through to the upper layer.
