Floris Vanhoof - "Hootcha"

Known for his energetic live performances with homemade synths, tape echoes and 16mm film acrobatics Belgian Floris Vanhoof knows how to surprise spectators and himself on repeat. On this recording acoustic instruments like gongs and strings meet warping electronics in refreshingly open and fluctuating compositions. On the A side a sweet electronic melody suddenly fades to one channel, whilst on the other appears what seems to be the sound of random zapping through TV channels. On side B a mutated rhythmic monster, walls of synth are floating in steadily shapeshifting patterns into a joyful delirium. Floris has previously released cassettes on Taped Sounds, Breaking World Records and a LP on Ultra Eczema.
