Recorded at Yonge-Dundas Square (Intersection – Day 3), September 2, 2017.

In recent years, the Intersection Festival would normally consist of a paid concert, usually the night before the day-long extravaganza in Yonge-Dundas Square. This year, however, under the continued guidance of Burn Down The Capital's Tad Michalak the festival expanded to four events, including a pair of concerts at The Jam Factory. The day-long marathon in the concrete canyon of commerce remains at the festival's heart, though, exploring the frissons of experiencing strange and occasionally abrasive sounds competing with the city's mersh heartbeat.

This was billed as a solo set, and indeed for the first two-thirds, Didur supplied a zone-out phase-groove. Then, in the piece presented here, as the rhythm machine kicked in he was joined by Louis Percival on bass — a new, ongoing duo reformulation that is being billed as Hexagon. The tasty tune ended with another new recent Didur trademark: lifting up his spring echo box a few inches and letting it fall back to the table with a percussive sproing.

[Hexagon will be opening for U.S. Girls at Tranzac on Friday, October 27th.]
