MUTATE is improvised, experimental soundscapes: dark ambient, intense in nature, mixing live drones with off-kilter beats, shortwave radio and random foundsounds. Usually.
MUTATE live employs processed guitar/bass guitar, dictaphones, tapes, vinyl, tape loops, TR-606, samples, radio and primitive looping to construct anything from dense soundfields to expansive ambient textures. In the studio, styles and genres are blurred and juxtaposed.
MUTATE is the sound project of UK improviser, Ade Bordicott.
two live sets of intense ambient guitarscapes
All music/production: A. Bordicott
This release brings together two consecutive live performances:
Track 1 - Six Eight Kafé, Birmingham, UK (24-03-2017)
Track 2 - Birmingham Electronic Music Festival (23-03-2017)
Unfortunately I was only able to capture a section of the first set. Still, I think there's enough there to show how improvised performances can vary dramatically. I had planned the general direction of the first set, but left the second set wide open, without any rehearsal beforehand. This opened the door to happy accidents & I was happy with the results of both nights.
The Interstitial series documents the live/improvised side of my work, which can often be in stark contrast to my 'studio' releases.
