Drawing from his background in a wide field of genres including rock, classical, film, theater, improvised, and electronic music – composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist Hahn Rowe has developed a uniquely personal sonic language, creating atmospheric, sensual, and polymorphic soundscapes. He has shown a keen ability to bridge and meld acoustic sounds with the infinite textures available through analog and digital processing into a strangely organic and emotional sonic realms. Tonight’s performance will feature solo, digitally de/re-constructed violin – fluidly transforming from sensual-textural microsonics to the lush and quasi-symphonic.
Equally at home performing on violin, guitar, laptop, turntables, and digital/electronic studio instruments, Hahn Rowe has retained his unique sensibilities while crossing musical borders. Hahn has performed and/or worked with artists such as Hugo Largo, Glenn Branca, David Byrne, Hassan Hakmoun, Foetus, Mimi, and Antony and the Johnsons among many others.
He is currently active as a composer for film (working with directors such as Michael Apted, Lodge Kerrigan, and Tom Gilroy) and his longstanding musical collaboration with Brussels/Berlin based choreographer Meg Stuart (Damaged Goods) has resulted in the creation of 7 critically acclaimed dance/theater works.
