Brooklyn, NY – Hans Tammen‘s Third Eye Orchestra performs Clepsydra, a score produced from electronic sample and hold procedures.
Tammen’s compositions are inspired by Charles Ives’ polytonality, Steve Coleman’s rhythmic complexity and Karlheinz Stockhausen’s organization of sounds. Using textures, timbre and dynamics as primary elements, Tammen’s music shifts continuously, with different layers floating into the foreground while others disappear. Whether richly processed guitar sounds from his hybrid interactive guitar / software instrument Endangered Guitar, traditionally notated material for his Third Eye Chamber Orchestra, or graphically notated elements for the all-electronic Dark Circuits Orchestra, Tammen’s music “[transforms] a sequence of instrumental gestures into a wide territory of semi-hostile discontinuity; percussive, droning, intricately colorful, or simply blowing your socks off” (Touching Extremes).
The 13-17 piece ensemble includes string and wind quartets, voice, pianos, guitar, moog bass, percussion, plus electronic live sound processing. Founded in 2005, the ensemble regularly plays in New York City at Roulette, Czech Center, Brecht Forum, Galapagos, and others.
