Live in Düsseldorf is a recording of a house concert at Uwe Brameier’s place. Uwe is a long-time supporter of my music, but also the founder and main figure behind modul303.com; a German radio station specializing in electronic music of all kinds.
This music was composed and arranged entirely in real time, using the live looping method, where musical phrases can be recorded spontaneously during the performance without interrupting the ongoing flow. Loops of recorded phrases can be played back together and combined into complex polyphonic arrangements.
Live in Düsseldorf was still performed without a computer, so it had to be done within the limitations of the given hardware on which it was performed on (EMU XL7; BOSS VF-1).
Another notable feature was the use of a ZTar as a general input device, instead of an usual keyboard.
