At the same time as writing the album Frederic was building up his equally unique live performance. Not content with the usual 2-CDJs-and-a-mixer routine he created a completely new live experience using a bizarre array of instruments spanning the antique, the modern and the homemade.
Rather than relying on vast amounts of playback Frederic builds many tracks from scratch during each performance, introducing large elements of improvisation and risk to the music and offering his audience a unique show each and every time.
We captured one of his 2013 live sessions and are proud to present this to you in the form of Live Signals.
Using a mixture of drumming, modified Wii controllers, wired-up kalimbas, his trusty violin and his own voice, Frederic takes the listener on a journey though adaptations of tracks from Mixed Signals, some new material exclusive to his live work and reinterpretations of some of his remix projects.
Frederic’s live work has gathered massive interest around the world, rapidly resulting in high profile gigs. As well as supporting electronic legend Ulrich Schnauss he recently headlined the Spectaculare Festival in Prague with Jon Hopkins.
