This show, part of Brighton Dome’s earsthetic 2015 programme, was highly anticipated.

Glaswegian music producer Alex Smoke has been renowned for his experimental and minimalist techno for over a decade.

An evening performance alongside visual artist Florence To offered a chance to see his work in a new way; transported from dark underground clubs into a more considered, cultured setting.

The other headliners on the double-bill were Sculpture, a London-based duo who combined fast-paced analogue visuals with vintage hardware.

There’s always something a little overwhelming about the Studio Theatre when it hosts audio-visual shows.

The dark of the dance floor in contrast to the large visuals screen and brilliantly loud sound makes for an intense experience, which Sculpture lived up to with fervour – their frenetic, high-energy performance left the crowds wowed.

Alex Smoke got off to a slower start, demonstrating his classical influences with deconstructed rhythms. After the visual assault of Sculpture, To’s stripped-back monochromatic display set a much bleaker tone.

As their performance progressed, it built into a powerful, balanced, pulsing creation, but didn’t reach the heights of Sculpture. Both of the evening’s sets were impressive, but in very different ways, and would have probably been more effective if the running order were reversed.

Four stars
