Sonic Cauldron: Live at Left Bank, Leeds, 26/04/2013.
A one-off curation of new material featuring:
- Katie Harkin - Vocals, Organ, Synthesizer, Guitar, Drums
- Jeff T. Smith - Vocals, Guitar, Max/MSP, Boomboxes
- Jenna Isherwood - Viola, Synthesizer
- Tom Evans - Guitar, Bass
Joined by members of Sky Larkin, Vessels, & Invisible Cities, Jeff T. Smith (a.k.a. Juffage) took to the stage of Left Bank Leeds on April 26, 2013, to debut a one-off set of entirely new material. This release celebrates the one-year anniversary of the cauldron's existence.
Originally an ambisonic work, members of the audience were encircled in a plethora of loudspeakers, boomboxes, and guitar amps. The distribution of live sound was governed by a Max/MSP patch built by Jeff, thereby assembling the "sonic cauldron" in real time. Here, for your everyday listening convenience, is a stereo version of the first two tracks from the concert, "Bury" and "Last Few True".
