Download a Live Improvisation Set from Pete Swanson
- Words: DeForrest Brown
Earlier this month, Danish creative organization WORM elected to give Brooklyn-based noise provocateur Pete Swanson full use of their studio equipment for a week, the outcome of which is a cerebral, 25-minute live improvisation set. Pete Swanson has been making waves in his post-Yellow Swans career, making incisive, techno-informed noise music under his given name for labels like Type and Software. The artist's recorded performance heavily features the "The Putney VCS 3," a semi-modular analog synth which creates a tapestry of scattered voices and bell-like rattles that Swanson bathes in crushing blasts of white noise. A full stream and free download of the live improvisation can be found below.
