POOLcast 022 - PLO

We have published twenty-two POOLcasts in a row, now. Music by 20 different artists. Unique pieces from all over the world. Canada, USA, Colombia, France, England, Switzerland, Australia, Sri Lanka, etc. and many more to come. But there is one in our line up which has a special meaning and also delivers the core spirit of the POOLcast the most - PLO.

POOL Lab Orchestra is the core of everything that THE POOL BERLIN and POOLcast define. Bringing people, knowledge and art on all levels together, especially while PLO meetings with its basic idea of live jams and visuals. During PLO's sessions, countless artists were involved and new ones get invited again and again. Each session is a unique and independent experience. Musicians and their instruments, whether on a laptop, synthesizer, drum computer or modular system, perform music together without any rules or genre restrictions. Loud, quiet, fast, slow, straight, broken, warm, cold, bright, dark. All sorts of conditions a session can adopt. Sometimes coherently in a marathon lasting several hours or sometimes quickly fluctuating in a few minutes.

The recording, which is now released as POOLcast 022, was created at a meeting of 7 artists. Namely Matt & Mark Thibideau, Dr. Nojoke, Demas, ANN, frOm KaraOkE tO StardOm and Waldboot. Played on 2 laptops, Elektron Digitakt & Octatrack, iPad, Korg Monologue and 2 modular systems.
