In an attempt to graft the sprawling improvisation of pioneers like The Necks onto the tightly planned economy of pop and electronica, Hence Therefore uses synths, samplers, effects, a mic and a loop pedal to spontaneously generate new tracks at every performance, ranging unpredictably from sparkling vocal-driven pop music to dark, messy techno and everything in between. Audience and performer alike revel in discovering the songs simultaneously.
