Australian electronica overlord Chet Faker kicked off NonComm Day 3 with an incredible set, filled with loop pedals, synth pads, and drum machines galore. Heavily influenced by jazz greats including Chet Baker, leading to his eventual name change, Chet Faker’s set was filled with jazz-influenced vocals, and syncopated drum beats. A highlight of the set was “Cigarettes and Chocolate,” an instrumental track which starts out with one single voice descending in a major scale, building in minimalist percussion, and eventually becomes driven by syncopated guitar and processed vocals.
