I love Doug Theriault‘s live performances because you can see firsthand how he extracts so much sound from so little. This video captured at KPSU where he was playing live for Ricardo Wang’s radio show is a great example of that, with him using an iPhone and a laptop to screw up the sound of his guitar in ways both beautiful and harsh. Make sure you have headphones on when listening to it as well to fully enjoy the way he plays with the stereo field as the performance moves forward.
From the artist: “Had an amazing experience in the sensory deprivation float at Portland’s Float On. Having all your senses blocked from the real world and open to your mind feels so good! This track was performed live after I got back; the visuals are feedback created with a 8mm vhs camcorder running into an archer video enhancer filming the monitor. While I was in the tank at Float On I experienced similar visuals that came and went.”
