Story So Far.. Part 4 Från Göteborg till Japan -Charity Art Performance-

Finally, I have just got back from amazing fund raising event organised by four Japanese dancers of Göteborgs Operan in Gothenburg, Sweden. Quadroptica collaborated with Kyoko Matsumoto for special dance performance called 'Kizuna'. Event was highly succesful with such acts as Little Dragon and Magnus Rosén also on the bill. There was some nice press coverage of our piece on Sveriges Radio.  It was great to be able to contribute to rebuilding of Tohoku area of Japan. I'd like to thank my wife, Monika for some beautiful photos that I used to animate with. Here is a little teaser and the recording of the performance on the night. See the full version here

Talvin Singh presents Tablatronic USA/Canada tour 2010

Quadroptica have designed custom made visual for the Mercury Award winner Talvin Singh who is currently on USA/Canada tour. Click here to see the remaining dates .

Talvin Singh is best known as the father of modern Asian electronica music, though he is also a highly celebrated tabla player, record producer, electronic musician, and DJ. Singh helped to re-introduce the concepts of Indian classical music to western pop, dance and jazz genre’s in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Singh collaborated with artists in diverse genres such as Bjork, Madonna, The Master Musicians of Jajouka, Jay Z and Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Singh’s groundbreaking debut “OK” was a huge critical and commercial success and won the UK’s two most prestigious music prizes, ‘The South Bank Prize’ and ‘The Mercury’. In 1990 Singh conceived the Tablatronic, a hybrid electronic/analog instrument which allows the player multiple sonic-processing possibilities.
