This new series features our immersive audio and visual studio as a space where live performances that cultivate new works and ideas are performed live by emerging artists from the community (both musicians and visual artists). Harvestworks Hausmusik is geared towards the concept generated in the mid-19th century that celebrates musical performances in the home or smaller space setting, where composers provide an insight into their newest works.
André’s performance combines elements of his tracks and pre-recorded sound material with real-time sound improvisation and experimentation. André reduces his original tracks to their essence: selecting a haunting melody, a grainy bass layer, or a repetitive arpeggio line, and matching them with ad-hoc produced and improvised sounds elements. The musical elements used for the show are taken from André’s debut album I hope the roof flies off, and I get sucked up into space.
Hello.O’shay will be performing 4 to 5 songs using his TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch 2 and his Roland SPDSX Drum Pad. Using a combination of loops and samples, Hello.O’shay will recreate some of the work that will be featured on his debut EP ‘HELLO.O’SHAY SEASON ONE’. The EP is a collection of Episodes that tell a story of heartbreak and self discovery.
HELLO.O’SHAY SEASON ONE will be released this Summer.
