DINA Video Profile: Christopher Rave

'Dancefloor-guided acid bombs, made live on requisite squelchy hardware'

DINA Video profile features original content, filmed & edited by the DINA team to give you an insight into the works and lives of artists from around the world.

 

Our first video profiles Sheffield based music producer Chistopher Rave who ‘plays dancefloor-guided acid bombs, made live on requisite squelchy hardware.’

 

He uses a range of analogue synthesisers, drum machines and effects, recorded live through his mixer and with no computer in sight.

 

This creates improvised and spontaneous music that fully embraces any mistakes that occur during the recording process. As Christopher describes, “While this may not make for perfect takes, I think it gives the music more feeling - generally panic, but often alongside other emotions”.

 

This video was conceived by Mattias Jones & Nathan Gibson, and was filmed in Sheffield.
