Instrument-maker, circuit-bender, ambient musician and one of the coolest people on the planet Tim Kaiser is returning to Noa Noa on Saturday, June 29th for a very special performance. He’ll be in the area for the Louisville Experimental Festival. We’re very fortunate that he agreed to make a stop in Nashville.
You NEED to be at this show. I know I say that a lot, but seriously. This time. NEED.
Who is Tim Kaiser?
Tim Kaiser is well known in the atmospheric experimental music scene for his blending of acousto-electric contraptions and Frankenstein electronics to create ethereal, layered drones. His sonic landscapes have been called “experiments in adventurous art” and “eclectic genius” by the likes of Make Magazine, Wired, the New Art Examiner and the Associated Press. Mr. Kaiser was featured on the PBS program MakeTV and has headlined numerous experimental music festivals in the US.
Check out his appearance on MakeTV where he discusses his instrument building:
This will be the fourth in a new series of experimental concerts at Noa Noa. The theme for the night is “Inner Space — three acts building their own private fantasy world through instrument design, hardware hacking, and music. ”
Dylan Simon & Amy Blackburn Simon will blend voice, synthesizer, and hurdy gurdy into a tapestry-gilded gateway to the dream world.
Devin Bell (Blight Side of Life) will harness the power of audience smart phones and use them as multi-channel speakers in which to broadcast his circuit-bent drone set. That’s right, your phones are the speakers!
Incidentally, all three acts are Circuit Benders’ Ball alums.
