It was a long time since I watched SGE in action. Longer time since I played with them. Last Sunday, they performed again. This time with Eric Hausmann, an experimentalist from Portland, USA. This was not the first time. I played alongside with Eric in 2012. I even blogged in HERE.
So I came in late with the family after attending the UTP Hari Raya Gathering. It was raining heavily as well. By the time we arrived, the dialog session has already started. Eric and Kamal Sabran (the madman behind SGE) were answering questions for the floor.
20 minutes later, it was time for the performance. All I can say is I was overwhelmed with the wall of sounds. It always like that with SGE. Miniscule preparation. It all starts with the first note and whatever came in after that, is a matter of the butterfly effect.
Looking forward to play again with SGE. Check this OUT.
