This Saturday I'm performing a solo set of music inspired by sand dunes, fire, tectonic plates, wind, falling snow, auroras, and polar night (which Antarctica is in the midst of right now!). I'll be playing stones and shells from the Arctic and Antarctic, sea salt, driftwood, glass and shakuhachi. Field recordings will include brash ice, fire, and sounds from Pyramiden, an abandoned Russian coal-mining settlement in Svalbard.
Eurostache is a San Francisco Bay Area electro-acoustic group that focuses on real-time collaborative experiments in sound. Their music combines custom hand-built and circuit-bent instruments with conventional instruments in unusual ways, and sets aside the traditional constructs of music composition to explore the fringes of sound.
