Live at Cafe OTO

Performed as part of ‘Halldorophone Night’ at Cafe OTO put on by Scott McLaughlin.

The halldorophone is a ‘feedback-cello’; a cello-like instrument with built-in loudspeaker and volume controls for each string, allowing any string to self-oscillate in feedback.

I was improvising on the instrument mostly creating drones, resynthesising certain prominent harmonics from the signal and then feeding them back into the speaker of the instrument which in turn affected the feedback loop.
