    predator will use the money to modernise 

    After a while since my last considerable post on this blog I’d like to write about the best thing I’ve done lately.

    KLC is a thing started some time ago in Milan, when I was doing DJ sets regularly with a few friends.
    Our sets were focused on dark sounds, percussive dance music mixed with more atmospheric stuff and post-punk influences.

    The three of us then moved to London and last year we had the chance to work on an original composition (and live set) for a project with Jude Crilly, presented during the Serpentine’s Transformation Marathon. Since then we wanted to keep on producing new music and reshape the project into a proper band, blending a dance-oriented type of electronic music with the impact of a live (hardcore punk) band.

    During a couple of rehearsal sessions we wrote some new material and then selected 7 songs for this EP titled ‘Predator Will Use the Money to Modernise’. Huh, right, I’m doing the vocals on this. Enjoy it (or don’t):

     

     

    Some screenshots from a video I made for the track ‘Migmar’ (will publish it soon on this blog):

    Guruji 

    Last week I had a live session for a video work directed by Jude Crilly. With my project KLC, we played a jam session made of stereotypes of dance music in order to summon the oracle Guruji, played by a dancer, in a live dialogue between sound and movement. The whole thing was recorded with Kinect cameras, and the final video was part of the Serpentine Galleries’ Transformation Marathon.

     

    Here an introductive text by Ben Vickers and the final video:

     

    For the recording of Guruji, artist Jude Crilly brought together a group of lone bedroom techno & deep-bass composers, who usually make their sounds by night behind their computer screens. Guruji was recorded, cut and mastered at an all-night techno conjuring session at Cafe OTO, London. In a fully ritualised audio labour—with full soundsystem rig—they join forces to summon the Guruji, a spinning rave digital divinity. She’s like a youtube bedroom dancer; sexy girl, she’s into dubstep, 2-step garage, ambient and house. But through the smoke machine of data, something really happens when she hears the subs. Guruji the Illumination, she comes in hard with the dawn, comes with a special message for the radio.

     

     

     

    PS: the video contains one of the first experiments I’ve done with Vocaloid
