Take part in a massive synth orchestra! Using flashcards and hand signs, Hans Tammen has worked with large ensembles using electronic instruments for way over a decade. As part of this year’s Make Music NY at CultureHub, we will work with analog synth players – 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!

Setup starts at 5pm to get ready to make noise at 6pm. We’ll get familiar with the graphical score, then learn the piece for the performance at 8pm. You HAVE to do the workshop to take part in the performance, because we’ll look at everybody’s setup to find the best place for you in the piece. And bring friends: workshop and performance are free, and open to the public, of course!
