LAMPO PERFORMANCE SERIES
On Saturday, February 7, Berlin-based composer Arnold Dreyblatt will perform two works: "Turntable History / Spin Ensemble," a piece created from his own recordings of an MRI scanner, which he treats as a giant Tesla coil, and "Nodal Excitation," a 1979 work for amplified “excited strings'” bass, strung with piano wire.
Arnold Dreyblatt is a composer, performer and visual artist. He studied music with Pauline Oliveros, La Monte Young, and Alvin Lucier, and has been based in Berlin, Germany since 1984. Among the second generation of New York minimal composers, Dreyblatt developed a unique approach to composition and music performance. As he began his music career in the late 1970s in New York, he invented a set of new and original instruments and performance techniques, as well as a tuning system called just intonation. He has formed and led numerous ensembles, working under the name “The Orchestra of Excited Strings.” In 2007, he was elected to the German Academy of Art (Akademie der Künste, Berlin).
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
