Internal Sun is the audiovisual project of Antwerp based duo Andrew ‘Chi’ Claes & VJ Natché, covering their joint output of live performances, tracks, remixes, artwork, and soon a limited edition EP due to appear March 11th 2013. Having teamed up for the first time investigating cymatics – the study of visible sound and vibration – is exemplary of a distinguished Internal Sun esthetic: organic, fickle and visceral.
Live, Internal Sun delivers an impressive and contemplative performance including electronic instruments, modular software and visuals. Bringing their own highly personal and largely improvised take on the Warp back catalogue and its pioneering sound of hi-tech jazz, the cinematic live acts of Nosaj Thing & Amon Tobin, and the Flying Lotus brand of instrumental hiphop.
On stage woodwind player Andrew ‘Chi’ (BRZZVLL, Stuff., ….) makes use of an EWI (electronic wind instrument), which controls various synth modules, alongside a handsonic percussion controller & several custom software patches. Broodingly dark yet melodious, Andrew layers themes on top of looped bass and beat sliced percussion, with VJ Natché complementing his improvisations visually, displaying a distinct mixture of seamlessly superimposed and processed vector art, warped VJ loops and streamlined fractal patterns.
