'INCREASE' AT MUTE FESTIVAL 2020
I performed a 30 minute live set on the Modular Synthesiser and Beat Step Pro Controller at the MuTe Festival (27th November 2020). Originally planned to be performed in a night club, the concert was redesigned due to the COVID-19 restrictions and was livestreamed from the Studio Thomas in Sibelius Academy. It was fantastic to be able to perform this set and I thoroughly enjoyed composing and performing my work 'Increase'. It was incredible to perform alongside the other two sets of truly inspiring music. It meant so much to have my family and friends back at home watching the livestream and to also have fellow Sibelius student friends watching and dancing along from the other studios.
'INCREASE' - starting at 31 minutes in the video above. A set of original experimental dance music performed live using analogue modular synthesizer and launchpads. The performance is based on the concept of ‘increase’, starting in one sound world and ending in a completely new world. This References how we spend a life time striving for increase only to find we are trapped climbing levels where we are so concerned about doing something better, Worse, more or less than we have previously experienced that we use this to validate our happiness.
