FIELD-RECORDINGS AND SOUND-DESIGNED ELEMENTS MEET
THE “FOLEYBOARD”, A SELF-BUILT PERCUSSIVE SYNTHESIZER.

My approach to Live music finds its roots in techniques, developed by Jamaican Dub legends like King Tubby or Scratch Perry in the 1970s.
I use a custom built 8-channel mixer with LP/HP filters on each channel and a separate SpaceEcho effect on a touch device.
Studio produced sounds can be dubbed (combined and manipulated) while playing. It feels like reshaping puzzle-pieces as you assemble the overall picture during a performance.

The Foleyboard uses a sound reactive wood board, on which all kind of objects, like seeds, sand or brushes are used to generate sounds, which are than manipulated to shape morphing sound sculptures. This setup gives me the possibility to react on momentary ideas and brings theatrical elements into my live shows.
