Improvising with Leeroy New

Improvising with Leeroy New

Leeroy New is a renowned contemporary artist from Manilla in the Philippines. Kapow Movement invited him to Belgium. I was happy to do a very special performance with him and the filipino dancer Ea Torrado. 

I played improvised music for a 30 minute dance performance. The act built up slowly with the attaching of the latex. I used my Chinese lute to build a first sound loop. After that I used the analog Korg Minilogue synthesizer to simulate the stretching of latex and to create some kind of weird dance vibe that Ea then moved to. A very hypnotic performance! It was great fun to do. 

Check out a short video impression of the experience:

Live performance on BYOB Gent with @Kaosbeat visuals

Live performance on BYOB Gent with @Kaosbeat visuals

I hooked up with Kasper from Kaosbeat to bring this video performance on #byob Ghent. The soundtracks to the images was played live with keyboard, slide guitar and my looping set up with Ableton. The live visual effects are done by Kasper. It was our first collaboration but definitely not our last. The whole evening was great fun for us. The public seemed to dig it since we won the public crowdfunding price that evening. 

Check out one of the takes we recorded:
