IVO BOL (live sampling - synthesis)
Ivo Bol is a composer / performer from Amsterdam. “Composing involves listening to the world around you. To the hum of the fridge or the noise of the record just before the song starts. When performing I use my body to manipulate these sounds with light sensors, touch, gesture or brainwaves.” ivobol.com
