Take part in a massive ensemble of electronic instruments! 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 NYU, we will work with any electronics that make sound.
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!
We’ll approach each synth Bit from the point of playability. You’ll learn about the endless combinations in the Synth Kit with oscillators, sequencers, keyboards, filters, envelopes, delays, and (my favorite) the random Bit. The course is also practical because we play together and collaborate as a musical group, and can watch how a millimeter here or there makes a huge musical difference.
Originally inspired by a performance of the David Murray Bigband conducted by Craig Harris at the Knitting Factory some time in the 90s, Hans Tammen creates open form multi-movement pieces with a large variety of ensembles for over a decade.
