"There was one moment in the night when everyone sort of looked up and looked at each other in shock almost," Johanna Knutsson said of their first performance. "It really felt like we all talked with each other but just through music. We all talked about it afterwards and we all felt it."
That debut performance happened last summer at Freerotation, the small festival at Baskerville Hall in Wales. Mullaert, stood behind a spread of gear worthy of a NASA cockpit, was joined by Knutsson, Alexander Berg (better known as Dorisburg), minimal luminary Mathew Jonson, and Freerotation cofounders Steevio and Suzybee. As dusk fell on the hills outside, their rhythms ebbed and flowed for a crowd that stayed with them through the final note, which sounded some six hours after the first.
Here's the story of Circle Of Live's first performance.
