...subtle creature-like electronic tones [that will] softly resonate across the valley; eerie and otherworldly.Synth Birds is part of the Island Bay Festival, other events we'll be giving a heads up on as they draw closer. Like the Ribble Street Soapbox Derby.
'Synth Birds of Dawn' will be performed using three vintage synthesizers known as theremins. Theremins are a special instrument which can be played without being touched. Invented in 1919 and one of the very first electronic instruments, the theremin consists of a box with two projecting radio antennas around which the user moves his or her hands to play. The sounds created are ethereal and highly expressive.
'Synth Birds of Dawn' will be performed live from three hilltop locations in Island Bay on Tuesday, February 14th and Thursday, February 16th between 6.30 and 7.00am, and will have a duration of approximately 30 minutes.
