Errorsmith – Near Disco Dawn
The third Errorsmith release contains a selection of live recordings made between 2001 and 2003 in various clubs and concert venues. Most of the tracks on this album are interpretations of classic disco and R'n'B songs. Digitally synthesized, distorted and filtered club-music which goes far beyond its origin. Less abstract and much more dancefloor compatible than the two previous Errorsmith releases, this album is close in spirit to his Smith N Hack and MMM projects.
The live sets were played on a laptop with a self-built digital live tool, a combination of a simple sequencer and a synthesizer. Errorsmith uses this tool to manipulate both the rhythmic pattern and the triggered sounds in real time. With a huge degree of freedom in playing his instrument, no two gigs were the same. Initially planned to be released as studio versions, Errorsmith decided to keep the rawness, incompleteness and live feeling of the concert recordings.
