Using flashcards and hand signs, Hans Tammen has worked with large ensembles using electronic instruments for over a decade. As part of this year’s Make Music NY he will work with an ensemble of Korg littleBits synthesizer players. The littleBits are tiny synthesizer modules connected via magnets for quick changes in the signal chain, fitting into the littleBits modular system for infinite combinations of audio experience. We are looking for about 20+ players to take part in the workshop and performance – you do not need to bring a kit because littleBits provides us with 20 kits to create a massive piece of synthesizer music!

This year the ensemble will be extended through the CloudBit, sending the conductor’s directions over the internet. Ensembles in other cities will respond to the conducting in realtime, making you part of a global ensemble.

Workshop starts at 2pm to get familiar with the synth and learn the piece, performance is at 5pm. You HAVE to do the workshop to take part in the performance. And bring friends: workshop and performance are free, and open to the public, of course!

How to Join:
