During Sonic Acts Academy 2020, ten limited edition 7" dubplates – pressed with rough edits of feedback manipulations* from a Buchla 200 synthesizer executed at Studio 4, Elektronmusikstudion Stockholm – were played back and recorded as an exclusive ten-minute set in the main hall of Paradiso, Amsterdam. None of the material pressed onto the dubplates has otherwise been preserved digitally aside from this specially recorded rendering taken while the hall was vacant of audience. The original 7” dubplates are available to purchase via the Sonic Acts webshop.
