AFUM 2009: Jason Sweeney with Tristan Louth-Robins (15/04)

Jason Sweeney and Tristan Louth-Robins presented an improvised laptop performance, consisting of droning samples, synthesis material and real time recording.

The mesmerising nature of the performance proved very successful, as the sonic material slowly drifted and traveled from one audio 'landscape' to another. With live sets like these, one can't help but to wonder about a subconscious underlying, internal narrative - perhaps not in a linear sense, but in an overall descriptive one. The use of field recordings to enhance this feeling alongside the spatialisation of the audio and the subtle sonic morphologies all gave rise to an excellent set, one which I was happy to have been present at.

LOL, the video has a one-star rating.

Could be a critique from one of the chiptune faithful. ;)
