Putsch is an ongoing live performance based audio-visual project which currently consists of Ronin and Freddy Frogs.
Our setup is designed around a building completely improvised arrangement from a few basic sonic elements. All drums, vocals, bass and breaks are sequenced and performed live on-the-spot using a Jazz Mutant Lemur, Novation Remote 25, Korg PadKontrol, Evolution UC33, Korg Nanopad2 and Korg Nanokey. There is a massive Ableton project at the heart of it enabling the step sequencing, breakbeat re-arranging, quantised triggering and patch changes.
The improvisational setup means we can adapt to various tempos and production styles, depending on the event. We have done gigs at 140/160/180 bpm. Within that tempo-based framework the music can go a wide-ranging journey across genres and from minimal to maximal.
We have a video of our first rehearsal which has since been endorsed by Point Blank, the music college where we both teach Ableton.
