ABIOGENESIS

CONCERT. Free admission. Hans Tammen & Third Eye Orchestra.

 

Mari Kimura (vio), Jason Hwang (vio), Stephanie Griffin (vla), Tomas Ullrich (cello) Ned Rothenberg (clarinet, bass clarinet), Michael Lytle (clarinet, contra bass clarinet) Briggan Krauss (as, baritone sax), Robert Dick (flutes, contra bass flute) Dafna Naphtali (live sound processing, voice) Denman Maroney (p/kb), Ursel Schlicht (p/kb), Nick Didkovsky (g) Jonas Tauber (b), Satoshi Takeishi (perc) Hans Tammen (composition, conducting, concept)

"I have felt that the conditions of spontaneity and mobility of elements which I have been working with create a more urgent and intense “communication” throughout the entire process, from composing to the final realization of a work, I prefer that each “final form,” which each performance necessarily produces, be a collaborative  adventure, and that the work and its conditions of human involvement remain a 'living' potential of engagement." (Earle Brown)

HANS TAMMEN & THIRD EYE ORCHESTRA
Hans Tammen uses Earle Brown's open form composition idea as a starting point to create a large multi-movement piece, thoroughly composed and purely improvised at the same time, inspired by West African roots of Jazz, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, Steve Coleman, and Stravinsky's layering or Steve Reich's phase techniques. In ABIOGENESIS, written for the Czech Center's beautiful Bohemian Hall, the conductor uses the orchestra as an instrument, while each performer shapes the music through virtuosic improvisation and the individual stylization of musical performance. "Everything about Third Eye  Orchestra... indicates mastery and control" (Howard Mandel / CD Liner Notes) --
