The Improvised Electronics Round Robin serves as a platform for tool builders, artists and engineers to experiment in a performance based environment. Our focus is on custom instruments for the creation of real-time sound and visuals. The Round Robin strives to maintain an open atmosphere dedicated to inventive performability and signal processing systems. Performers are to play as solo instrumentalists with either audio, video, or audiovisual performance systems. Performers set up in a circle and play short interlocking sets in a clockwise fashion. After the initial round, each iteration of the Round Robin will feature a different theme that will slightly alter the structure of the previous session. This includes the introduction of a specific set of rule based systems or guest composer’s score. This Improvised Electronics Round Robin will feature a game score by Hans Tammen. Hans Tammen’s "Dark Circuits Light Orchestra" uses Earle Brown’s open form composition idea as a starting point to create a large multi-movement piece, performed by an ensemble of contemporary electronic instrument practices and visuals. Sound and visuals are treated as independent instruments, morphing from one entity to another, are juxtaposed, or put against each other in a crazed collision course of the eye & ear. Hans Tammen created long multi-movement pieces with large ensembles for over a decade.
