EARBUDDY PREMIERES VIRE'S LATEST VIDEO "HUMAN CONTACT" "Human Contact" ::
“His latest single, “Human Contact”, has an old-school ’90s electronic feel to it, but it’s the video where you see Wilson drumming like a madman that’s most impressive.” - Earbuddy
Dystopian dance music on the verge of eroding into digital noise, also known as VIRE. Now imagine this chaos coming from a single musician, a live drummer playing all the beats and triggering all the samples in real time, surrounded by sweaty moving bodies.
VIRE began with a single idea, to create a live solo electronic drumming performance act. Phil Wilson, who after years of playing in indie rock bands, custom built drums to accommodate the idea, and incorporated a drum-triggering machine that pieces of the songs could be loaded into. Wilson then cues parts and sections live during performances.
His latest video takes you through what appears to be a psychology experiment where two people are in the same room taking a video game test in which they have to meet in the game. It's a pretty cool concept.
