Other Info
Fed­erico Reuben is a com­poser, sound artist and live-electronics per­former based in Lon­don. His work chal­lenges con­ven­tional rela­tion­ships between com­poser, per­former and audi­ence through imag­ined per­for­mance prac­tices, col­lab­o­ra­tions and modes of sonic rep­re­sen­ta­tion and pro­duc­tion. He plun­ders, com­bines and alters cul­tural objects (record­ings, live per­for­mances, scores, etc.) through dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy to pro­duce amor­phous and absurd sound worlds. He is inter­ested in how through sound, affect can be trans­ferred, mod­u­lated and dis­torted. His work has been described as a ‘house of mir­rors’ — a space where expec­ta­tions are play­fully dis­torted, where the bizarre and ridicu­lous are pre­ferred over the ordi­nary, and where self-reflection is under­stood only through humour.

Trio with PA Tremblay & Sam Andreae

Had a gig the other night with two of my favorite performers (Pierre Alexandre Tremblay (we just finished recording a followup album) and Sam Andreae.

You can see The Party Van in action on my side, with some more Max/MSP goodness coming from PA. Sam? He kicks it oldschool with some ciat-lonbarde digs, some general DIY grunginess, and with a new school twist, an Arduino.

A Greater Horror – Bastard Video

So been doing this group with Mauricio Pauly and Alex Tod (A Greater Horror) since last year, but more recently it’s started picking up steam. We’ve got a gig at the Manchester Jazz Festival coming up in July and I’m quite excited about it as I finally incorporated my monome/arc/software setup (The Party Van) into the setup.

Here’s a video we made a few weeks ago filmed by Angela Guyton.

It’s pretty brutal.

I Rock the Party that Rocks the Party

So as you may know from some of my previous posts I’ve been doing lots of Max/MSP programming, moving my previously hardware-centric performance setup into the laptop.

I recently put out the v05 version of my Party Van software, and it is looking/sounding great if I don’t say so myself.

Here’s a performance video using solo snare + electronics:
