Chiminyo is a well-established solo show with a very unique performance aspect. Taking mankind’s first instrument and linking it to the most contemporary, the drum and the laptop, he uses the new and the old to search for what it is that makes us move.
With each crash of the cymbal or thump of the kick drum a cascade of elevating electronic sounds are triggered and generated by Chiminyo’s self-designed software. This innovative set up allows him to be in complete control, freeing him from all loops, click-tracks and backing tracks. Every synth, sample and sound effect is performed live, in real time. The result is a plethora of era-spanning dance-scapes featuring ethereal arpeggios, thumping acid bass lines and heavy beats.
