Rat-Drifting II is a project that was founded by Martin Arnold which attempts to bring together free improvisation, sound performance, noise, psychedelic process music, DIY para-punk composition and post-Fluxus word events.
I was invited to participate and create a solo performance using my custom built instruments -- and I took the opportunity to create a performance that also pays tribute to my old practice as a musician. The performance as a whole explores the in-betweeness of music and sound art, as I lean towards the latter, but not necessarily remiss my roots in Hip-hop.
The performance also features guest performances (live through Zoom) from Caleb Tao, George Szep, and Eric Slyfield. The work is filmed with a 360 camera, post processed to be viewable in 2D during the performance.
A special thanks to Arraymusic for graciously hosting the performance and giving a platform for musicians and artists alike, to further contribute to sonic explorations and performances.
