Live Sound Processing Projects

Projects that use electronic sound processing on acoustic instruments to fragment, distend and otherwise transform their sounds, creating an alien world of bizarre textures and polyrhythmic maneuvers. Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with extended solo cadenzas, creating layers of intensity, at times unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental. The acoustic sounds are in turn electronically captured, and processed into radically contrastive and fascinating noises emanating from Hans Tammen’s interactive software.

Intended to portray live sound processing as an instrument rather than a row of effects, the software was originally developed from the year 2000 on for the Endangered Guitar project, a hybrid interactive instrument.
