Xiu Xiu Explore Hideous Sound Design (No Talking)

video by Perfect Circuit

follow-up to this post.

"During their recent visit to our studio, Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart from Xiu Xiu showed off a number of ways to make sounds that were as hideous and disgusting as possible. After filming with all of their varied setups, we ended up with way more sounds than we could cover in just one video. While our main video provides some valuable artistic insight into their processes and choice of equipment, we wanted to share a glimpse into their sound crafting without interruptions.

In their first jam, Angela sculpts feedback loops with a collection of her favorite pedals from Earthquaker Devices, Boss, and Death by Audio, while Jamie helms the mixer and Trogotronic’s Valykrie, a modified test equipment oscillator. Next, Angela switches over to her Waldorf Streichfett, while Jamie moves to a couple pedals of his own: Death by Audio’s Echo Dream 2 and Benidub’s DS71 Dub Siren. Angela and Jamie then both perform some solo Eurorack patches, and Angela closes things out with a solo performance on her Streichfett and pedals.

Sit back, grab some headphones, and lose yourself in the depths of Angela and Jamie’s noise, chaos, and unpredictability.
