Gene Pool#72 Sonic Season: Max Eastley & Paul Whitty

Max EastleyPart of the “Embedded” live streamed “sofa concert” series. Acclaimed artist, instrument builder and kinetic sculptor, Max Eastley performs live with SARU’s Paul Whitty.

Delving deep into textural improvisation, with electronic processes warping and shifting an array of stones, aquarium bubbles and ceramic objects. Max Eastley’s distinctive bowed monochord becomes a plaintive voice in a pixellated flux of sound.
