Mike the Drums, New Performance in Brussels

What happens when we stop thinking that the primary function of a microphone is to capture sound and translate air pressure into electronic signal? What happens when we violate the basic rules and principles of audio engineering and recording technology? Mike the Drums is a performance where, rather than a pair of drumsticks, I play drums with a pair of microphones. The project explores the physical properties and affordances of the microphone and presents a more intuitive and analog way to approach audio technology. The performance is at DE LA CHARGE, Rue Théodore Verhaegen 152, SAINT-GILLES, BRUXELLES. 7pm, 12 december 2014. READ THE FULL PRESENTATION HERE.
