Little Oak Animal was great last night. Dafydd Hughes is a good sound artist, mixing up field recordings with computer generated sounds and filters to create a really gentle zoney audio environment. Rob shows slides and a bit of super 8, and he creates great effects by simply fading the images in and out on top of each other using his hands and pieces of cardboard to interfere with the projections. The result is a live improv that's got lots of performative tension, but these guys are good, and they've worked together for awhile, so it flows and meshes really well.
