Patching isthe process of connecting different modules together using cables to create, shape and modulate the sound produced. Scanner and Leafcutter John will begin with nothing patched, and build an electronic sound world between them. Everything you will hear will be created live at that very moment, never to be repeated again in a wiggling, wobbling and wild sonic adventure. They have no expectations or plans: only to listen, play and enjoy.
