Third Eye Electric Band

Unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental, Hans Tammen’s Third Eye Electric Band – for whom machine oil is mother’s milk – fuse relentless polyrhythmic machinations with ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes. Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare.




Projects other than the Endangered Guitar that use electronic sound processing on percussion, string and wind instruments, to create an alien world of bizarre textures and polyrhythmic machinations.

Presented at Made in NY Media Center by IFP, this show features Frances Wang's peaceful street scene manipulated by geolocation, Yuxi Cao's distortion of an iconic 900 year old Chinese painting using Beijing's air quality data, Kurt Ralske's poetic rendering of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, Matthew Ostrowski's re-imagination of Koyaanisqatsi as a colorspace, Eva Davidova's mixing of spaces and bodies to create uncertainties, and Emilio Vavarella / Daniel Belquer highlighting topics and keywords of all the memories collected by their drone project.

Blatant Lies is a battle of analog and digital sounds as Hans Tammen and Adam Rokhsar use modular synths and the sensors hidden in smart phones to make a new form of dance music.
