Join Hibs on the Woodland stage for his first-ever live performance where, in what is possibly a world-first, he will create new, 80s-style 12” extended versions of familiar songs entirely live, using a combination of state-of-the-art digital equipment, technical wizardry and some crafty knob-twiddling.
Over the last 15 years, Hibs has gained a large online following of dedicated fans who cannot get enough of his brilliantly crafted 12” mixes of 80s music. His approach is relentlessly purist, sticking to the original ethos of the “extended version” using only sounds sourced from the original material, de-constructing and twisting the familiar in new and exciting ways, shedding new light on old classics. For his world-premiere at ALSO, Hibs is upping his game, piling on the pressure by taking this concept even further by recreating his studio techniques live on stage in real time. Unlike playing a traditional record, the songs you hear will be fluid and open to improvisation and manipulation – even he won’t know exactly which form the final version will take!
