The Duvet Brothers Live Multiscreen Scratch Show

The Duvet Brothers toured a live multiscreen show for 3 years. We played out from three sources into as many TVs as we could get, minimum 9, maximum 25, usually 18 or 21. They were built in an architectural shape on a scaffold structure. The show consited of two sets of about 20 minutes. Later on we added a mic and digital delay and Peter performed poetry live as part of the show.
