Aesthetic Evidence


@ Lily Pad

Aesthetic Evidence :: Halsey Burgund + Peter Bailey :: WHEN: Thursday, March 8th – 8:00 PM sharp :: WHERE: Lily Pad – 1353 Cambridge St (Inman Square), Cambridge, MA :: WHY: because we do crazy things on stage with instruments and computers and other people’s voices (and we might even ask you to donate yours…)

Aesthetic Evidence's music is based on recordings of human voices which the band members make both in the field and, in certain situations, in real-time during perfomances. These spoken voices are combined with instrumentation and singing voices to form their music. Using various sampling and triggering technologies, the band re-creates their songs live by playing traditional instruments along with real-time electronic manipulations.

Halsey Burgund uses a malletKAT, an electronic mallet percussion controller, to trigger voice samples and play various sounds while guitarist, Peter Bailey, fills out the arrangements with both electric and MIDI guitar. Please go here for more information and music downloads.
