performance :: true primes

true primes set up at the artist beehive mckibbin lofts yesterday to play a set for the promotions of fingered. ah the studio loft ambiance! digital projectors, artists, high ceilings, music. beats sunday school. true primes were playing along to footage che shot for his film. a nice addition to the true primes line up was robbie lee, accompanying with guitar and woodwinds. although fragmented in true primes style, there was something very traditional and cultural in this set verses others. something ceremonial like native american pow wow.

true primes oozed in and out of atmospheric / musical pieces to their film with an improv manner; some pieces with pushing rhythms; this being one of the more melodic sets i've heard from true primes. i christen thee pop! the great difference was che and robbie bringing in alot of woodwind sounds along with tibetian chimes and rolyn's fx'd vocals and loops. overall a great sit down sound atmosphere experience. the acoustics were actually great considering the typical make shift pa's of loft parties. true primes worked well with empty pockets so each sound could arrive with no competition or clamour. perfect way to end the week as we take our first nyc step into winter.
