Live Electronic

by Irwin

All beats are performed live, other sounds are designed and generated from computer, accessed via theremin, composed and looped on the spot. Irwin is known for melding the spontaneity of jazz and the power of rock with a pulse like hip hop on steroids.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thank you! This DVD is born of the incessant requests from people who have been coming to shows over the last 8 years, as well as those who have asked for more after hearing it in movies released by Transworld, Standard Films, Hurley and Burton- It's audio AND visuals showing how music gets made in realtime(live) in this century.

After having worked with a wide range of artists such as John Cale(The Velvet Underground), Fred Wesley(James Brown), Gregg Field(Sinatra, Basie, Fitzgerald), David Navarro, The Beastie Boys, Gary Jules, Melissa Ferrick, Rickie Lee Jones, Will Cooper(Mazzy Star), Roy Bittan(The E Street Band), The Greyboy Allstars, Brian Reitzel(Air), The Brian Jones Town Massacre, Adam Topol(Jack Johnson), Dan McGough(Tom Waits), Eugene Goreshter(Autolux), Vinnie Golia, and Deepak Chopra(Healer)- I hope to pioneer a new style and fresh method to delivering music.

Irwin is known for melding the spontaneity of jazz and power of rock with a pulse like hip hop on steroids- though rarely sounding retro. His unique performances have merited four return tours to Europe and praise from the most critical music and art aficionados.

This DVD documents live performances and an interview giving insight to the art form of live electronic music.

It sounds like new music, and yes, it will be good for you!


"One of the most original and cool things that I have ever seen." -Scott Riggs, 105.3 FM

"Irwin doesn't just play his electronic(music)- he makes it on the spot, creating all the beats and sounds right in front of you. see it if you dare..."
-PaperMag

"Irwin is considered by many the most innovative and talented live electronic act in the world." -KPBS

"If Irwin's last performance is indicative, anything is possible at his next show. Irwin's last performance was a chaotic mix of groaning samples..., beautiful serene soundscapes, backwards analog-synthesizers and intense live drumming." -The Guardian

*****
Thank you for your interest and positive support. I hope this DVD inspires viewers to feel, think, grow, and eventually forget- so you do it again, another way.
Irwin.....

WHOA! just got it and watched the whole thing ~CRAZY AMAZING~ 5star *****
I've been going to Irwin's shows for years! It's great to finally have some of his music and film! And it's from shows i wasn't able to go to. This DVD is Awsome! WELL DONE!! Just the interview with Irwin at the end makes it worth it!!!

Elliot Racine

Awesome auditory and visual experience!
It is one thing to hear music being made in such a creative and original way, but being able to see it at the same time gives the experience an entirely new dimention. I would highly recomend this DVD for anyone with an appreciation for high-energy musical performance.

Now you can take the show home with you!
Irwin's performances build with anticipation before the show, inspire and amaze during the show, and leave you wanting more after the show. Well, now I can have MORE, thanks to the DVD. I ordered it immediately, tore it from the packaging when it arrived ,then promptly watched it 3 times in a row.
Plus, it's a great DVD to impress your friends with!

c'est chaud
yes, it was about time irwin made himself available to us via DVD. his live shows are astonishing, but always leave us wanting for more. merci irwin.
finalement, je peux te voir et t'entendre quand je veux, où je veux et aussi souvent que je veux.

CDs alone don't capture the experience, witness it in the DVD
Apart from a stimulating interview, there are no words in this DVD or on its menu, just as there are no words that adequately explain what an Irwin show is about. This DVD comes as close as anything to the visceral experience and excitement of a live show. Watch it to witness music being made on the spot--although his hands on the drum kit fly faster than the eye can catch. And don't miss the hidden track of a classic show in Paris (can I say that on here?)

Marilyn Noonan

AWE-INSPIRING dedication, passion, and emotion in tangible form.
Imagine taking all the passion in your life and focusing it into an everchanging, improvised and accessible artform... Irwin achieves the impossible and this DVD will invigorate every sense in your soul. BRAVO, Baby-- this is a GIFT for any art afficionado.
