HAINBACH / TODD BARTON - Ultraviolet Light Tapes & Upcoming Todd Barton Performances

HAINBACH / TODD BARTON from Ultraviolet Light Tapes on Vimeo.

Upcoming performances by Todd Barton futher below. The following is the description for the video above.

"Both pieces are composed/improvised in real time using a Buchla Music Easel

and a TC Electronic Ditto x4 looper. Angya is a journey that follows sounds as they

unfold into various sonic universes. Texture III explores creating an ever-changing

timbral drone."- Todd Barton

'Its a clichè that every composer travelling to Bali must be influenced by the Gamelan orchestra. I am not the exception. There is a magic to the Gamelan that conforms with what electronic music is to me, both in sound and composition. Using Adam Morford's cut down version of the Gamelan, the rough but beautiful Gamelan Strips, I composed the first piece of this collaborative album. The second uses modular synthesizers to mimic the layering techniques of the Gamelan. The final track, Antics, explores a different but similarly influential idiophone, the African mbira. Together, these three tell a story of immersion and disintegration, folding percussive sounds into ambient timbres.' - Hainbach

Geist and the Sacred Ensemble coming through town on their West Coast tour.
Time: 8pm Where: Ashland Community Center, 59 Winburn Way in Ashland, Oregon
More info:

April 12 (Friday), Control Voltage Therapy will join Caballito Negro (Tessa Brinckman and Terry Longshore)
Caballito Negro presents selections from their acclaimed program, Alone | Together, as part of the Ashland Independent Film Festival. The concert is an intimate tribute to futurist speculations, with science as play, in collaboration with electronic musicians Todd Barton and Bruce Bayard. The performance will take place in front of Bruce Bayard’s projected installation, Triptychs.

As a duo Todd Barton and Bruce Bayard create improvised soundscapes with electronic music instruments to accompany Bruce’s video projections. The projection, Triptychs, uses the tools (code) commonly associated with web pages, to create complex, ever changing, never repeating collage of images, animations and video.

Time: 7pm Where: Schneider Museum on the campus of SOU.

April 18 (Thursday), I will give a solo Buchla Music Easel improvised set as part of a concert at CREATE on the campus of UCSB. CREATE is the Center for Research in Electronic Art Technology.

Time: 8pm Where: Lotte Lehman Concert Hall
