BASS HOLOGRAMS NYC

Mark Bingham: guitar, effects and spatialisation
featuring Emilie Lesbros (voice), Chess Smith (drums) and Hank Roberts (cello)
Hosted in residency in May 2016 at Spectrum NYC, the French composer and performer Floy Krouchi will develop a new piece on site, and invite musicians for a series of performances.
Inspired by Indian music and its most ancient instrument, the Rudra Veena, Floy Krouchi has developed an augmented bass which uses electronics and real-time transformation.
Bass Holograms is a mystic and contemplative experience, at the junction of ambient, noise, improvised and electroacoustic music, diving into the swirls of an “electronic raga”.
