Multi-media collective Slow Six has been delivering its own brand of electronic chamber music since 1998. Instrumentation includes amplified strings, electric guitars, keyboards, homegrown software instruments, and video projections mixed live throughout the space. Born of that natural space between classical and popular music, Slow Six mixes the instrumental prowess and compositional focus of classical music with real-time digital signal processing and lush visual landscapes. Whether collaborating with modern dancers, interpreting improvisational structures, or performing dynamic electro-acoustic scores beneath layers of video, their sound is always engaging and distinctive. Central to Slow Six is the extensive use of custom audio applications composer, violinist, and software designer Christopher Tignor creates, allowing him to transfigure the sounds of the acoustic instruments in the ensemble throughout the work. As these audio samples are captured live and thus unique to each performance, the computerâ€™s voice remains rooted within its evolving musical surroundings transforming the computer from its limited role as a playback device or sound effect generator into a full-fledged member of the ensemble.
The bandâ€™s debut release, Private Times in Public Places, was chosen as one of Time Out New Yorkâ€™s top 10 classical recordings of 2004 and has been featured on radio programs internationally. The group performs regularly in NYC. More information is available at www.slowsix.com.
