Climax – Gig Excerpt (3)

The final excerpt of the ‘Cittasamskara’ event held at The Moor Theatre Deli, 2016.

The song, slowly builds with militaristic reverberated snares, a swelling layer of pitched vocals and a slow advance in volume, which builds up to nothing. An anti-climax.
This is how I had felt at the time about my university degree and personal life, everything I had done so far in my life had been working up to something I no longer had; I felt extremely detached from the entire arrangement, to say the least.

Cephlalgia – Gig excerpt (2)


Cephalalgia – Ice cream headache

This is the Second portion of a 3-part performance of visuals & sound, combined generative & composed. Performed at the Sheffield Theatre Delicatessen in support of ‘Jefferson Slim Sheik Experience’ for their ‘Cittasamskara’ show.

One of the few pieces containing voice, albeit barely recognisable. Regarding the cognitive dissonance contained within ice cream headaches.

Relax – Gig Excerpt (1)

 
This is the first of a 3-part performance of visuals & sound, combined generative & composed. Performed at the Sheffield Theatre Delicatessen in support of ‘Jefferson Slim Sheik Experience’ for their ‘Cittasamskara’ show.

I wanted each section within the performance to have a defined style. Thus this part refers to calming notions of water, nature, birds, forests, etc. I conceived this piece after discovering a ‘relaxation cassette’ made by my father for one of his clients roughly 20 years ago. I listened to the entire recording & constructed complimentary pieces of sound design to go alongside the narration, as well as utilising existing footage of water used in previous projects. Subverting both to form a new, altogether connected experience.
