MakeMusicNY Dark Circuits Modular Synth Orchestra
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!

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.
