When seeing electronic artists on a stage there's a good chance the tension and excitement gets lost after about twenty minutes in, the energy's dulled in transmission. Not with this one, though, I felt gripped from start to finish, in and out the sonic realms Matthew Barnes reigns over. He played his guitar and as many devices he could and had a bass player to counter him. Worked tremendously well and the tracks unfolded much heavier than on record with more room given to the drums and percussions.
On top of that the VJing was super intense, subtly building a haunting, yet intriguing feel from crisp, surreal clips. Probably never liked humans in projections so much.
see me run then you're gone
There with commutual zeal we both had strove
In acts of dear benevolence and love;
Brothers in peace, not rivals in command.
Homer - The Odyssey
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Dumpty together again
