Kee Avil - Space 1.5

It was a real honour to have a chance to co-present a show leading off the second incarnation of the wonderful TONE Festival. Even if there can be unexpected shifts in a lineup from planning to execution, I was very excited with the night that came together. It was our good luck that Vicky Mettler was in town working on music for a dance piece and was able to step in at the last minute. The first songs from this new solo endeavour that have emerged on her EP establish this as a project to keep an eye on — and seeing the gorgeous execution of the mangled loops and shifted textures in a live setting is thoroughly impressive. This music sounded so much bigger in this space than the last time I'd seen this project, so while this recording can't fully express that immensity, I'm happy that it at least offers a very clear rendering of the stereophonic sound space that Mettler constructed on the fly.
