Streamed Live performance from "Montreal Sessions" CKUT Radio McGill April 29 2008.



Sean plays field recordings he's collected from travels abroad and at home. These recordings,
sometimes recognizable sometimes not, are treated and layered both in preparation and live.
On their own they give a range of sound from image evoking ambience to a sense of intense orchestration.
Eric improvises on the drum kit, reacting and juxtaposing to the always uniquely arranged sound coming from the laptop.
Sometimes following directions hinted at, but also searching for a rhythm that isn't there.
He draws on over 25 years of performing experience and influences from hardcore to reggae. "To present live the very moment of invention in an ultra slick ultra rehearsed age is an exciting part of what we do."

Sean O’Neill is an experimental sound artist working with textural elements of field recordings,
environmental/urban impressions and found sounds. He is interested in acoustic spaces and natural
ambience, looking to incorporate electronics and interactive mixed-media. His recordings have been
used for performance, installation, and radio, including presentations at 404 Festival, Spark, and the Ice Hotel.
O'Neill is an avid sound recordist, and has collected recordings throughout Southeast Asia, Europe and the US.
His recordings under the name 'When I Know You Will Too', create stark ambient sound structures and intense atmospherics.
His intricate arrangements are collated from various sound sources and form strange compositions of distant, melancholic beauty.
Following the gong-led ambience of debut 'Astoria' on Asaurus Records, his latest release 'Aca' serves as an expansion,
merging crystalline static with reverbed alien atonalism, percussive (de)structures and distorted timbres.
As a drummer, Eric Tschaeppeler has toured Europe, performed in N.Y.C, Halifax, Montréal and had a residency
in a London cabaret club. His drumming style has been described as warm, groovy and minimal. As a recording artist, he has recorded in Jamaica with Sly & Robbie, N.Y.C. with Mick Taylor, London with Guy Chambers, Warsaw, Berlin and Montréal. Composition styles have ranged from Hard core, Bluegrass to Actuelle.
As a composer/multi-instrumentalist, Eric has created music for a wide range of visual genres:
Documentary film, experimental to promotional videos, gallery openings and web sites.
For Film soundtrack, styles have ranged from Middle eastern to ambient, Gamelan to Pop. One film, "Faultlines" by Eylam Kaftan,
won "Best short" and the "Jury prize" at Toronto's Planet Indie Film Festival.
Another, "Journey" by Nancy Petry has toured the electronic media festival circuit from the FILE festival in Sao paolo,
the MONA festival in Detroit to the London Biennale. Eric has busked undergrounds, bars and cafes on guitar and voice.
