Our intrepid Deputy Editor spent six months living in Berlin in 2014 and this live video was recorded with the one and only Elder Roche in the process towards the end of his stay in Tik Nord. What is captured in the video is rather intimate and holds extensively throughout the performance. A prevailing sense of depth is also present lyrically. This combines well with his conclusive ability as a live performer and shows here. The steady instrumentality allows the outlines of the song to steadily come through. You note the telling warmth of the lyrics that is matched by his vocal performance. that engages everything with a comfortable showing and the way everything is placed works incredibly well here. As a live video it also captures a level of intimacy from both the setting and performance which marry well to further enhance the appreciation for this video.
