Stephan Meidell live video
Stephan Meidell released the brilliant LP Cascades last year, and while we are waiting for his next solo album he has sent us a quite special live video recorded at Bergen Kjøtt.
Stephan says: The idea for this video was to make something between a concert video and a music video. Creating an engaging visual experience from something that is – at it’s core – slow and static. Only one performer playing 25 minutes of improvised, repetitive loop/drone based music utilizing computer and a cassette-player is maybe not the most exciting thing to see on a video, but hypnotic visuals created by the Turkish artist Tolga Balci, and a crew of five photographers made this performance special.
The music is mainly improvised, with a framework worked out beforehand.
