Anklepants & Chromatouch
An ongoing mutation through music, character design, creature effects, and animatronics. You are cordially invited to meet the first of many faces of Dr. Reecard Farché, the devious mastermind and shapeshifting convict bred deep in the darkwood of the Australian bush that later absconded to Rise to the Summit of the übergründé.
Anklepants combines a vast array of hardware and instruments including synths, guitar, oud, voice, animal / any sounds, and field recordings. Live he comes armed with self-built electronic instruments such as his Facé_control 2 microphone (a wireless physical computing delight) and a colourful sensor laden wardrobe. Distorted mutated vocals, disassembled musical blurbs, glitches reflecting diverse influences – there is something restlessly changing in his music, at times generating a semblance of light and easy party superficiality, while at others looping into weirder multilayered territory through performances that more often than not leave audiences bewildered.
