Watch This: David August improvises 16 minutes of live deep house bliss
Young David August — the German wunderkind signed to Innervisions and Diynamic — is quickly transforming into one of the foremost talents of the underground. If there was any doubt as to his potential, such reservations will immediately be extinguished upon viewing his new performance video for Resident Advisor.
Sampling an old Alfred Hitchcock quote, August constructs a sixteen minute performance utilizing an array of MIDI controllers synced with Ableton Live. The first five minutes consist of a bit of experimental bliss that has conjuring images of Max Cooper or Nicolas Jaar. Things soon pick up as August brings us on an engrossing journey of his meditative German deep house. Perhaps most impressive of all, the entire performance was improvised.
