FM3

Published on October 24, 2007

FM3’s Tuesday night performance at 2 Kolegas was certainly a treat. The defining element of FM3’s sound is the drone collage – a technique they developed through their much lauded Buddha Box performances. The highlight of the show was the final number in which the drone of loops and guitar built to a glorious crescendo with Jonathan Leijonhufvud of PK14 joining in on drums. When the fog finally settled, the set closed out with the audience joining the band in an a cappella rendition of a traditional Chinese folk song. One of the few moving performances I’ve seen this year.
