A very special live AV collaboration between Anthony Child and Ali Wade, following Child's new album, Electronic Recordings from Maui Jungle Vol. 1, on Editions Mego.
Also known as Surgeon, Anthony Child is among the most revered and adventurous electronic musicians to emerge from the UK’s homegrown techno scene. Appearing alongside him is his long time collaborator, photographer and videographer Ali Wade. Together they present a jointly improvised performance in which sound influences vision and vice versa. Their intention is to induce a trance-like state in both audience and performers. As well as featuring a swathe of psychedelic custom footage created by Wade, this performance also sees Child performing on the rarely seen Buchla Music Easel synthesizer.
“Has there ever been a more deliciously appropriate artist moniker than Surgeon? The unrelenting bass battery and serpentine rhythmic and melodic patterns of Anthony Child's music cut right into your core, triggering instinctive physical responses so deep inside that you're barely aware of them taking complete command of your body.” – Rory Gibb, The Quietus

The pair have been working together since early 2012 using dual modular synthesisers, electronics and computers.
