In "Methods Of Expansion And Contraction" disparate scenes and subjects form a continuous montage of contrastive timbres, textures and sonic eruptions, occasionally interrupted by quiet pulses. The work is presented on a 16-channel sound system, the sounds were created on a Buchla Music Easel and Hordijk Blippoo Box.
Take part in a massive synth orchestra! Eurorack, Moog, Buchla, Serge, Tonto, self-designed instruments: as long as it has patch cords and is analog, it's in! We are looking for about 20+ players to take part in the workshop and performance, to create a massive piece of waves, filtering, noise, and beats!
As part of Chuck Bettis' Stone Residency: with Dafna Naphtali - voice and live sound processing, Chuck Bettis - electronics + throat, Levy Lorenzo - custom electronic musical instruments, Hans Tammen - analogue synth
The Dead Sea Horns are Dan Blake, Ras Moshe, Yoni Kretzmer on saxophones and other woodwind instruments, and Bob Hovey on trombone. Hans Tammen plays the cyclebox. As Plutarch remarked: "Good listening is the point of departure for living well."
Under the name RISK MANAGEMENT, the music of Bruce Gremo and Hans Tammen is structured around playing techniques and instrument schemes which are by nature and by design precarious. Bruce Gremo is performing on the Cilia, his patented flute-controller instrument, originally developed in part through a grant from Harvestworks a decade ago. Hans Tammen plays an analog modular synthesizer built around chaotic behaviors.
