.com pieces

Tag cloud datafile The .com pieces are a series of pieces I started in early 2013 which are centered around snare drum feedback and form/memory as composi(/improvisa)tional material. So far I have finished two of them, iminlovewithanothergirl.com (for snare, microphone and DMX lights) and ialreadyforgotyourpussy.com (for amplified wind instrument and amplified snare). The third and final .com piece is in the sketching stages and is as of yet untitled.

Shbobo/Shnth/Ciat-Lonbarde

So back in March I got some funding from my school to bring one of my favorite instrument makers to the UK.

Peter Blasser has been making crazy amazing instruments for years now, and I’ve been using them from the point they were first available as kits (the original Fourses/Fyrall).

Peter has started a new company focusing on digital/embedded instruments, the first of which is the Shnth. I can attest to it’s kickass-ness.

Check out all the links to learn more about it, but this post is mainly about two videos. The first is an excerpt from a performance Peter and I did. The second is an amazing documentary (by Angela Guyton) about the workshop itself.

He works regularly with dancers. One of the last projects is Delay vs Trio, a piece using computers with the dancers Franck Beaubois and Patricia Kuypers where a movie is 'built' step by step on the spot. Ninh currently worked with the choreographer Clara Cornil for (H)AND(S) a piece for 5 dancers and 2 musicians that has been premiered in February 2009.

His discography counts about 40 CD on european and north american labels.
