Live Footage has been wowing crowds for the last year across the tri-state area. They are a cello + drum duo in the vain of Squarepusher meets Debussy or Cinematic Orchestra meets Explosions In The Sky. Limewire’s review about the band says they are “.. an all-encompassing, otherworldly, druggy sound that left me speechless.”

+”Settle in and enjoy a night of warm-spirited music made by talented friends. Cellist Topu Lyo and drummer Mike Thies are Live Footage, which uses loops to augment its live sounds for lovely and occasionally breathtaking electronic pieces.”
-Wall Street Journal

+”The pleasing sounds continued next with Live Footage. The duo consists of Topu Lyo (electric cello) and Mike Thies (drums, synth). Topu Lyo and his phenomenal cello skills are captivating. In fact, he played with all four bands during the evening and was intense and mesmerizing the entire time.

The set from Live Footage transformed the room. Each song started out simple and then built upon itself creating a fuller sound that engulfed the room. The band recently released their self-titled debut record and there is sure to be nothing but praise and accolades in their future. Simply magnificent”.
