This is a preview of The Big Bug – a live looping performance by Swedish ‘electro shamans’ Lur (Mika Forsling and Erik Rask).
The duo records various modified instruments, electronics and hacked toys on stage and then manipulates the live loops with DJ effects and filters.
Among the gear are MIDI lightning balls, Q-chord, YouRock guitar connected to a Mopho, custom breath controlled keytar, music saw, IR MIDI controllers, Kinect body tracking and electroluminiscent wires in costumes controlled by Arduino Lilypads.
Or as they put it, they play “a lot of different instruments and junk”.
Lur plans to tour Spring 2012, together with the release of their first album. See the Lur site for more info.
