The New Physical Electronica
I have decided that if you are a band with guitars, bass, drums and nothing else, I have no time for you.
But that doesn’t mean you have to use a laptop.
In their project Rhythm 1001, the group Invisible jams on plastic cups, typewriters, chairs, robo-tambourines, weird things with pegs, voice-mail tapes:
I love the fact that it’s simultaneously so electronic — a whole crazy spaghetti network of servos and controllers — and so not electronic. No MIDI score here; it’s all human performers.
Oh yeah and I also love the fact that it’s so beautiful.
