Extrema Outdoor Live set contest – The Finals @club Labyrinth
A reflection of last Extrema Outdoor Live set contest – The Finals @club Labyrinth.
First of all I want to thank my friends & family who where with me in person & in thoughts at finals of Extrema Outdoor Belgium 2017 (XOBE17) Live contest finals.
Congratulations to the winner Distanz, He was my personal favorite!
We all had to perform 1 hour.I played 22 tracks which I all made with love and are all based on personal experiences/reflections in life.
I learned a lot from this experience, there is still a lot of work in terms of mixing/tuning all the sounds together. The experience of live performing was very intense. I didn’t pre-arranged my patterns.
This way I have the pleasure of improvisation to the maximum, building the tracks, live adding effects/scenes and playing with the TB-3.
Because it’s difficult to memorise everything (the banks of the patterns) I took some notes with me as a back-up. This way of working live is very rewarding but also very exhausting in a good way.
As a dj I like to play very long sets, up to 12 hours, but for a live set this would be impossible to do at this moment. Maybe when I’m more experienced and I find a better way to organise my set-up.
I’m not there yet, but on my way!
The aftermath: I think there are a lot of cool things coming up, stay tuned.
