Every live SNED fingerdrumming performance is an improvised exploration of sound – a uniquely organic synthesis of the live and the electric – music that is created, produced and performed before your eyes in real time.
A complete re-imagining of physical hardware capabilities – brought to new life, as true instruments – and a showcase of entirely unique, limit-pushing controllerism.
As a solo roving live electronic finger drummer, SNED has spent the past year taking to the streets of Melbourne with his unique blend of beats and melodies made fresh for the city’s eardrums. Free form beat discovery without restraints or limits – grooves, samples, bass, synths, chords and percussive elements opened up live in an always original expression – free form improvisation taking place in the midst of song structures that are constantly re-imagined as they are allowed to grow anew each performance.
Forever listening for what the groove wants to become, no two sets are the same as musical tools and elements are continuously reconfigured between shows with a persistent motion towards the freshest of freshness. The sound sourced from these fingertips takes it’s influences from the realms of hiphop, chillwave, dub, electro funk, neo-soul and all realms of modern bass music.
Be sure to use headphones or good speakers to hear the bass and full dynamic range of sound! 😀
