Enrico Bertelli and David Ibbett: percussion live electronics

Enrico and David are classically trained composers. Enrico has been inspired by Xenakis and performs regularly compositions by Steve Reich. David studied composition at Cambridge and together they composed musical performances using electronic drum kits, MaxMSP, Ableton Live and an iPad.

We recorded three videos during their presentations.

In the first video, Enrico plays a piece using samples of guitar and drums.

In the second video, Enrico and David improvise with Enrico on the drums playing guitar and drum samples again, while David controls the chord progression of the sound samples:

 

In the third video, Enrico explains the process behind a piece they’ve composed together and a performance of the piece (to be posted soon)
