disco victoriously

On February 25, Apparatjik performed in the 3 x 3 meter cube at the opening of the Deutsche Bank Towers in Frankfurt. Here are some video clips: Arrow and Bow | Snow Crystals | Look Kids

The film and talk topics for the summit all sound interesting, I am hoping more video clips show up on YouTube. In the meantime, if you click any link in this post, it absolutely must be this one. I love the way the music builds, and each of the guys' body language and gestures as they play. The audience reaction is interesting too. The hum of conversation adds another layer that's actually kind of cool and doesn't take away from the music at all. This is a seven minute clip from what was apparently an hour long 'disco combat' - what a tease!

More please kthx.

EDIT: added new links from March 4.
