Lab Mice

Chris Videll and I have played together many times in various projects and groups but never performed as a duo until two weeks ago. Lab Mice was conceived back in Nov 2012 and went through several stages before our first performance on 20 April, 2013. We wanted to create something new, not just a combination of our usual in individual sounds and tendencies. Chris usually plays “heavy drone” electronics while I tend towards amplified objects with quickly changing textures. I decided to slow down my playing using circular motions and amplified motors. Chris chose to sped up his reaction time with his electronics and also used bowed cardboard and wood. The results sound machine-like yet warm and unpredictable. We both employ electronic and acoustic sound sources. The dynamics vary from silence to near silence to quite. Sounds and photos coming soon.
