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:

A soundtrack for WUMU, Yunnan, China

A soundtrack for WUMU, Yunnan, China

Wumu is a tiny mountain village on a steep hillside in Yunnan, China. I've spent 3 weeks there so I had some time to film in the rugged area and the town.  I edited this small film around a soundtrack tune I had already recorded before.
