Playing With Light
A true innovator, Leafcutter John’s new live show is centred around the use of the Light Interface, a self-built contraption allowing him to perform gesturally using a variety of hand-held LEDs such as bike lights, torches and fidget spinners.
Made up of 16 light sensitive resistors, the software creates sounds triggered by the changing lights.
The soundtrack to the performance will be made up from samples from his latest record YES! Come Parade With Us which pairs Norfolk coast field recordings with optimistic synthesiser melodies and rhythms.
