Erdem HELVACIOGLU + Per BOYSEN Présences… by inagrm
This gig was performed in octophonics. At the soundcheck we were told they
actually had set up two circles of eight speakers system. One big
circle with the big speakers surrounding the audience and one inner circle… or
should I rather call it “inner exploding core”? We decided to use
both. I had re-routed my laptop outputs for octaphonic treatments and
Erdem used his rack devices through a borrowed stage mixer to address
the surround system. On stage we had a stereo mix of all eight
surround channels, so the monitoring sound were rather flat.

If you click the source link there are more videos of many other artists. Among them many of my own favorites, like for example Biosphère and Supersilent.

Guitar Player Magazine: Editor’s Top Three CDs

Sub City 2064 was among Editor’s Top Three CDs in Guitar Player magazine’s september issue of 2010. It’s a big honor to be mentioned together with icons like Stockhausen, Hassell, Eno, NIN and Pink Floyd!

I made this music because Erdem inspired me in our collaborative duet experiment and also because I’ve always wanted music like this; music that doesn’t restrict itself by a particular “style”, “instrument” or “scene”, music that exists for no other reason than that someone actually loved it enough to make a recording so that other people may enjoy the same experience.
