Khidja's new live show explores hypnotic territories
where movement and rhythm are generated through micro-tuned percussion (think of gamelan rhythms). Since Khidja will primarily rely on analogue equipment, each set promises a different sound, produced by the unique interaction between sequencers.
Khidja's music could best be described as a sound in between Steve Reich’s percussive work and Chris Hinze's (or even Savant aka K. Leimer) 70s reinterpretations of western and eastern rhythms.
Khidja will perform on digital samplers, semi-modular synthesisers, sequencers and contact microphones. British visual artist George Jasper Stone will take care of the show's visuals by modulating CGI-like landscapes using digital software. The visuals will be synchronised with parts of the audio and, as a result, the music will direct the video.
