Make Music NY is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year, with over 1,000 concerts on streets, sidewalks, and parks across the five boroughs.

From June 14 through 23, 2014, Hans Tammen’s DARK CIRCUITS FESTIVAL features performers who work in contemporary electronic music practices such as circuit bending, no-input mixers, laptops, turntablism, analogue circuitry, network sniffers, live coding and soldering, plus other instruments we may have never heard of yet.

APHERESIS is a large multi-movement piece by Hans Tammen for 14 performers of custom-made electronic instruments. The piece is performed by Matthew Ostrowski, Andrea Parkins, Dafna Naphtali, Miguel Frasconi, Phillip Stearns, Philip White, Joshua Fried, Shoko Nagai, Maria Chavez, Satoshi Takeishi, Joker Nies, Mario DeVega, Lars Graugaard and Michael Vorfeld. Prior to the APHERESIS performance, the ensemble will present their own version of "live coding" by creating a "littleBits Monster Synth" from 20 kits of the popular Korg littleBits synth.

Hans Tammen's Third Eye Laptop Orchestra performing on 4/4/13 in the Cimenelli Recital hall at Buffalo State College. The Third Eye Laptop Orchestra uses Earle Brown's open form composition idea as a starting point to create a large multi-movement piece, performed by an ensemble of laptop performers, analog synth players, circuit benders and other electronic musicians.
