[May 29] Hybrid Instrument Group Performance

The Hybrid Instrument Group explores and creates relationships between acoustic instruments and electronic music production and performance. Through experimentation with piezo microphones, a multitude of MaxMSP patches, and music production software, the group has built hybridized instruments that successfully process acoustic sounds into a new electronic dialogue. This evening showcases the group’s musical developments with hybrid instruments.

Kevin Dejewski is an experimental installation and sound artist from New York. He has received his BFA in Sculpture from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Dejewski had founded the Mid Hudson Art Collective where he has curated several exhibitions in the mid hudson region. He has shown across New York state as well as Chicago and Cleveland. Within his artwork Dejewski explores the dissection of information. Dissection involves disassembling an object or subject and observing its internal structure, as well as how it functions in relation to other objects and subjects. Cassettes, videos, digital recordings, films, books, poems, and photographs are dissected and reassembled into new vessels of information that explore the logic of the remix and its cultural benefits.

Dejewski will be creating and manipulating video feedback generated from the volume and frequency of the performances. Television test signals and video glitches will be used to generate complex patterns that are synced with the sound of the performers.

glitch cakeGlitch Cake is an electronic-rock trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Described as dark electronic ambient, or glitchtronic, the band draws from glitch art, house, minimal, dance and drum n’ bass styles. The band is comprised of drummer Poyraz Aldemir, guitarist/keyboardist Gof Parnmongkol, and singer Kat Tingum. A diverse musical background influences the band. Aldemir studied jazz technique in Turkey, Parnmongkol toured with ska and punk bands in Thailand, and Tingum performed as a musical theatre actor with several professional companies in the Midwest. These three musicians met in New York after they’d each begun composing and producing electronic based solo works. They now meld their styles to collaboratively compose and perform electronic inspired music. Glitch Cake performs regularly in New York City, and the band is scheduled to release an EP early this summer 2013.
