With the midi-controller tucked under his arm, Mark explains why he is not so enthusiastic about these kind of instruments in general. He paid good money for it, but the reward is limited. At least he can take it for a walk. So that is what we invite Chicago-based volcano! for, after they finished their soundcheck at Chelsea in Vienna. Yet before you could turn round, the twilight of this spring evening is eaten up by early darkness and we stumble just some two hundred metres from the concert venue into a deserted park. Let the galanty show begin! After having evocated some gloomy spirits with the performance of “Tension Loop” in the arbour, Aaron, Mark and Sam go for a melancholy and insofar really different sounding interpretation of “Performance Evaluation Shuffle”. When the reddishly aflame trio comes to an end, a distant clapping can be vaguely heard, but not a soul to be seen. A “hello?” to obscurity.
