231112 : Video teaser
Teaser snippet from the final moments of my warmup live set at the RECOIL "A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST" Blu-ray Screening Event in Guimarães/ Portugal, featuring the presence of Alan Wilder himself.
My performance ended with "Want:Rebuilt" (a special cover version of Recoil's "Want" seminal track), which was entirely produced in secret, only to be premiered at this event in front of Alan Wilder and a sold out venue.
Due to unbelievable last hour hard times given by the venues internal security, as to what any kind of filming was not allowed under any circumstances (even when myself and Alan pre-allowed it during soundcheck - with the exception for the screening itself), I thought I had lost all possible video footage from this historical moment.
Even the digital PA system was against us, as it didn't record the sound coming from my machines - well, lucky me - I'm an old dog full of tricks as to prevent any types of late minute stresses: I also put my laptop recording the sound via an internal signal flow and put a handheld digital recorder capturing the reverb of the room - so I ended up keeping the sound bits after some rework on post production.
Luckily on the other hand, VJ Animatek (who did the brilliant visuals to my live set) had a pair of cameras filming from the top floor, where he was operating his video magic. We're just sorry about sound and focusing, but you'll all agree that it's far better than nothing at all.
As far as I'm concerned, this will be the most memorable performance I've pulled in my life. It just goes beyond the "dream come true" concept...
Original performance filmed and recorded live on Nov 23, 2012 @ Black Box, Plataforma das Artes, Guimarães, Portugal.
I can assure the director's cut is getting done and it's fabulous...
