Promo News - 10th Apr 2019

Clemens Habicht has channelled the classic experimental animatoin of Len Lye and Norman McLaren in this lovely animated video for Australian contemporary musician Laurence Pike.

A longtime collaborator of Pike (who used to be a member of post-rock outfit PVT), Habicht has created a graphic representation of Pike's Drum Chant, and the combination of mesmerising percussion with electronica. Every beat becomes a mark on the screen, the changing soundscape visualised as changing colours. 

"Watching Laurence perform I found myself focusing on the round white mallet ends as if they were objects all of their own, separated from their sticks they became bouncing balls feverishly racing over the drums in a frenzy made all the more astonishing by their impossible precision at such speed."
