On the 15 December 2012, we did an audiovisual performance for Dance Your Eyes Festival 2012 in Gedung Indonesia Menggugat, Bandung Indonesia. Three members of lifepatch that was doing the performance are: manticore (visual), antirender (sound) and me (sound – using squaresolid as a nickname). Yeah, squaresolid was actually my blog on animal documentation and also my troll name in internet forums, but the organizer insisted we use nicknames for the performance and so we did. I have small objection to that but I threw it away on the end. Besides, the name is started to sticks on my personality anyway :D
