thank you for the great show on monday. it was nice to see you again ♥ and it was for me a big surprise that you played with Anne Müller :)
cheers David ♥
here is a folder of some percussion sounds in wav. format that I recorded with stationery.
Since I will be assisting the show, I'm eager to give some ideas:
-Songs like 'Brotsjor' or 'Till Enda' have a nice industrial/electronic feel to them, so this kind of style is definitely interesting and a different side of you, since most of your music is rather subtle and fragile (of course not meant in a bad way).
-I have seen that you are bringing a Roland, so I guess you have a palette of sounds. Since I have already suggested a more electronic/industrial feel, why not use some saw tooth synth sounds ? Something obscure, cold, ....
It is hard to give suggestions, since I do not know your set up well enough, but last but not least maybe a 'percussion based' song would be interesting as well, with more percussion-ish sounds like mellotrone (spelling not sure), clavinet,... just think of Aphex Twin's Druqks album and you'll what I am referring to.
I hope you can use some of the ideas, since I know it is hard to come up with a show that is fully improvised.
I wish you all the best.
