hainbach

Based out of Berlin, Germany, electro-acoustic music composer and performer Hainbach (Opal Tapes, Seil Records) creates shifting audio landscapes THE WIRE called “One hell of a trip”. Using esoteric synthesizers, test equipment, magnetic tape, and idiophones his music is both abstract yet very much a corporal experience. He has become known for his immersive live performances for and recently through his YouTube channel, where he brings experimental music techniques to a wider audience.

Synthcurious//Chapel of Many//Coventry Cathedral

Chapel

A big thank you to everyone who came along to the Chapel of Many over the last week. We had hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors. And thanks to everyone who came to talk to us about the Chapel, and our Sound Installation.

Thanks of course to Sebastian Hicks for a great event, and for inviting us to take part. And to Rhiannon Bigham for her help during the preparations, and the event itself.

Synthcurious//Chapel of Many// Coventry Cathedral

Chapel of Many

Synthcurious have been commissioned to provide the music for a sound installation for the Chapel of Many event in the Cathedral Ruins.

Using multitracking, looping and layering techniques the sonic representation will constantly evolve over the duration of the event, never repeating the same passage twice. This is to represent the uniqueness of every individual, and their involvement and participation in the groups they form each and every day. Some intentional, some accidental, but always evolving.

The event will run from Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd June, with the installation playing at various times throughout the week. There’s also a special launch evening on Tuesday 18th from 6pm.

Admission is free, and is open to everyone.

The Chapel of Many was conceived and designed by Sebastian Hicks from Coventry University.

Deliaphonic 2018//Artist Profile//Ian Helliwell

IH

We are delighted to confirm that this year The Tin Music and Arts and Synthcurious welcome Ian Helliwell to open Deliaphonic 2018.

Musician, composer, filmmaker, animator, electronic instrument builder, collagist, performer, writer, creative researcher, installation exhibitor, designer…. and author of the acclaimed book Tape Leaders: A Compendium of Early British Electronic Music Composers.

In 1991, Ian established his bedroom recording lab (still operational today), and began his earliest forays into electronic music with 4 track cassette radio collages. He started building simple tone generators which grew into a series of numbered Hellitrons. More sophisticated multi-circuit machines or Hellisizers, have augmented this unique range of self-constructed, creatively soldered instruments, which provide all the electronically generated sounds for Ian’s compositions.

Ian will start the event with a series of short films, many of which will be screened for the first time. Following this with a live performance.
