bongo808 live performance
percussion, electronic processing, and synthesisers
Initiated on a minimalist 40’s drum set inherited from a mysterious friend and a vintage digital delay, this solo has always been focused on making a musical alter ego.
Playing rhythms with delay create time and self distortion; sound is played, and comes again later, after it has crossed another dimension. We hear past sound and it affects the rhythm played in the present that will affect the future sound.
This time tension is a gate to a sonic twilight zone .
“bongo” is the first percussion instrument my father offered me when I was seven.
“808” is for legendary Roland TR808 drum machine.
