Autotectonic - [excerpt]

Another new electronic improvised music series, this one hosted by synthesist and sound designer Mike Barber. His concept, as implied by the series' title, was to record the sets by the evening's guests and use that as the source material for his own set. Cayce Fischer brought a different vibe to this set than what I had heard before, largely through the use of guitar as the sound-source in her modular rig, turning frozen rumbles into layers of white noise and granular fragments — creating a butterfly effect where small flutters would cascade into spiralling vertices of sound.

[Stay tuned, once the need for social distancing has eased, for word of the continuation of this series!]
