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 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.
To get us all in the mood for this years Deliaphonic event we will be having another sound installation at the CET building the week before, on Saturday the 28th April.
It will be totally live, as before. So expect a totally different sonic experience. We may even bring along some reel-to-reel tape decks, for some live tape manipulation.
A reminder that it is our rescheduled Live Sound Installation at CET in Coventry tomorrow. The Synthcurious curators will be joined by local musician Tim Seeley for what promises to be a truly unique sonic experience.
The performance will start at 12 noon with a 440Hz tone. After that, anything is possible, as the event will involve live modular patching and synth programming.
Synthcurious will be joined at tomorrows event by local musician, Tim Seeley.
This is not the first time we have collaborated with Tim. He played a key role in The Tin Music and Arts and Synthcurious schools project for the Deliaphonic event, devising and delivering the in-school sessions, as well as playing a central role in the performances at Coventry Cathedral on the afternoon of the event.
The visuals for tomorrows event will be provided by Tschock.
On Saturday the 2nd December Synthcurious and friends will be performing a Live Sound Installation at the CET building in Corporation Street, Coventry.
Set in one of the print halls of the former Coventry Evening Telegraph building the event will be an improvised experiment using analogue synthesisers to exploit the acoustics of this unique space.
