Craft Work is the latest project from Belfast-based producer and vocalist Chris Ryan, pairing sampled recordings of classical repertoire with a barked vocal. Sampling recordings as disparate as Messaien's 'Quartet for the End of Time' and the world music album 'Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, the result sits within the realm of hip-hop, but truly has its own sonic blueprint.
Performing live in the middle of the dance-floor of venues through the use of wireless networking via a mobile handset, Craft Work shows employ an improvisation and interactivity that toys with the notion of live electronic performance, taking more influence from hardcore and experimentalism than club culture.
