Waterflower // Live @ Erica Synths Garage

Published on Nov 4, 2017 Erica Synths

"Waterflower performs live with vocals, using a Roland VT-3 voice transformer and a Boss RC-505 loopstation with pre-composed samples (ikaossilator, field recordings, CC0 found samples and MIDI), playing a Korg Microsampler keyboard with custom samples; 2x Dentaku Ototo capactive synthesizers connected to a plant as a keyboard; Korg Volca Keys; Crystal acrylic electric violin; Firestix Drumsticks.

'Waterflower ' is artist Sabine Moore’s audiovisual performance project. Sabine Moore’s intertwined music and visual presence is an audiovisual journey into a unique world where sound and moving image have come together like an orchestral ensemble. Musically, Waterflower draws upon genres like Electronica, Experimental Pop and Ambient. Her multi-layered compositions are created from sampled sounds like toy beeps, running water, glass beads, gardening tools, and are then mixed with synthesizers, orchestral sounds - like the violin, ghostly piano melodies and her sublime vocals. On stage, a live potted plant is transformed into a touch-sensitive synthesizer using capacitive sensors. A similar technique also allows a separate plant to also act as a real-time midi controller for the artist’s visuals. The video animations display themes such as nature, science and the interaction of the two. One could say that “Waterflower” is like a sci-fi journey to a world outside of our time-line."
