into at new music indaba

Our performance went well on Friday night at the New Music Indaba 2013. Here are some set-up shots. We got positive feedback and have been invited to perform at the Unyazi Electronic Music Festival next year – here’s to Into getting out there to share our specific brand of odd! My only complaint is that the performance seemed to short, i wanted more. Brydon was pretty intense on the double bass (as usual), and Frank went quite nuts at times on the vibraphone and cymbals (he made me jump out of my skin once or twice). Now that i have a handle on resolume and my images are working, i need to focus on using midi controllers, mapping and multiple projectors. I particularly enjoyed rehearsing in the space alone, with the seriously involved piano practice of Jill Richards happening next door…we made some very private audio-visual magic that even she doesn’t know about!
