Hans Tammen & The Third Eye Electric Band Residency: Third Brew
Mar 4, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm
Unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental, Hans Tammen’s THIRD EYE ELECTRIC BAND – for whom machine oil is mother’s milk – fuse relentless polyrhythmic machinations with ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes, revisiting Miles Davis’ music from his Bitches Brew period. With several analogue synthesizers and other electronics, bass & drums, and with Emily Thompson’s ethereal floral arrangements as a backdrop, dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare.
