The Sticks - World Maps

The Sticks - World Maps
The Sticks began their campaign to travel the world with their unique brand of live improvised electronic music in November 2014. It began when Alon Ilsar invited close friends and long-time musical collaborators Daniel Pliner (synths) and Josh Ahearn (electric bass) to perform improvised electronic music once a week in a small Redfern bar.

As the event grew, The Sticks, alongside a rotating lineup of special guests including Luke Dubber (Hermitude), Jonathon Miller (Magnetic Heads), Peter Hollo (Fourplay) and Joel Rappaport (Big Village), began to push the boundaries of electronic music, capturing the sound and spirit of post-produced beats whilst improvising freely.

The AirSticks are like a 3D timbral Theremin that creates visually compelling and futuristic music allowing the grabbing, altering and morphing of sounds. This gestural electronic drum-kit designed by Ilsar and computer programmer Mark Havryliv also allows the live sampling and manipulation of the rest of The Sticks, completely blurring the line between drumming, sound designing and dancing.

About this track...

‘World Maps’, takes the listener through several levels of their favourite childhood video game. Ahearn’s bass refuses to sound like a bass, Pliner’s synths respond and carry the conversation while Ilsar plays a self-designed instrument called AirSticks.
