Having spoke to Mark Verbos before his live set I knew this was going to be all modular, live and improvised. I was expecting ambient (although gritty and more abstract than smooth drones) tones and textures however this developed and moved with the room and the crowd to suit the DJ before hand and Ebcidic performing afterwards. The set moves from stereo delays with the new Verbos Electronics Multitap delay which echo’d around the room beautifully through to suiting a Berlin club at 4am with slower and stomping techno patterns. It’s dark and gritty throughout and all emerges from a small system.
Mark was using his own 6U 104hp Verbos system as well as a 3U skiff of Verbos modules alongside a mixer with some FX built in.
