Continuing my physical action live sampling and mangling adventure (see here for my previous effort), at this gig I made a watermelon curry during my set. Full video (and recipe!) below. Again, I recorded some sounds during the first phase, and then distorted and destroyed them during the rest of the set.

The occasion of this gig was my friend’s (緊那羅:Desi La / Kinnara: Desi La) 10th anniversary live. The event name was Hologram and it took place at the superlative underground/noise space Ochiai Soup. I previously reviewed Desi La’s album Architecture, you can read it here. The other brilliant artist at this event were Kazuki Koga and Galcid.

This time I had the great pleasure of playing with Hexler, who programmed and supplied the superb audio-responsive visuals.

I’m still working on this new live approach, so there is a lot to be improved upon. This time my main problem was that the portable hob didn’t heat up fast enough to cook the curry sauce as desired, but it is such a simple and safe recipe that it wasn’t a problem.

Listen Here!

Spicy sounds, spicy taste!
