Sony Playstation Party

Sony Playstation Party

The Royal Arsenal,
London, UK
September 2001

Featuring performances from Vince Clark and Martyn Ware of Illustrious as well as a special set from pop group Erasure, the Sony Playstation Party was a private event that mixed ambient electronica and pop music using 3D surround sound.

Split into two parts, the show began with a performance of ambient electronic music composed by Clark and Ware, followed by a special set from Erasure in which the drums, bassline and much of the original arrangements were omitted in favour of experimental electronic soundscapes. 

All music was composed and performed by Clark and Ware, with the concert spatialised in 3D audio by Illustrious using the Lake Huron surround system.
