Of the immersive black & white experience, Superpoze explains: “The question of the ‘live’ in electronic music has always been interesting to me. In traditional, classical or pop music, you play first then record and produce after. In electronic music, it’s a reverse process. The moment I finished composing my album ‘Opening’, my first question was ‘How am I going to present it live?’ There’s an infinite way to play ‘live’ music that has been produced in studio and for an album. For these 3 filmed tracks, I decided to present and explain my composing process through the ‘live’ playing of chosen parts. I composed my whole album with a piano, which is what i show through ‘Overseas”. I have worked on textures and searched for sounds, but I have always tried to stay close to main melodies, like guitar parts in pop music. That’s what I tried to do by integrating guitar in ‘Unlive’, and proposing a different version to the one on the album. Finally, the set up used in ‘North’, the last track of the video, is close to the one I use on tour. It reminds me of the composing method and what really brought me to electronic music: MPC and synths”
