Loom, Nuit Blanche Taipei 2017

Loom is Alice Hui-Sheng Chang, Nigel Brown and Yannick Dauby.

We have been invited to perform at TheCube, in Taipei, during the Nuit Blanche 2017 for an event entitled Night of Multitude.
Originally we were asked to do two separate sets, but finally ended with the strange idea of performing together during three hours.
The challeng was : setup our own loudspeakers system, our instruments, do a quick sound check in just 60 minutes before the show. We failed, we could setup everything but lights, then had no time to do a sound check and start playing… We planned to create a sparse and diffuse sound environment, slowly adding elements and resting during the show… That didn’t work, since audience was many, concentrated and very close to us. Finally, I couldn’t easily play my instrument (24 strings Homeswinger built by Yuri Landman), we had a bit of hard time balancing each other, and the result was intense, dense, focused, non-stop, immersive… so it was great !
We don’t have any audio documentation of this show, we would never have time to press the REC button…
But we’ll do that again.
