north east scotland's festival of new music

Resonant Frequencies

A weekend of experimental music curated by Bill Thompson.

"The relationship between live electronics and percussion has a long history, stretching back to the early work of John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, David Tudor, and Max Neuhaus to name just a few. In many of their works they chose to focus on the timbral qualities as much as the rhythmic aspects of percussion, extending this with the use of found objects, prepared instruments, and live electronics. Each of the artists featured in Resonant Frequencies - Mark Wastell, Burkhard Beins, Will Guthrie, and Bill Thompson - explores a similar territory in their own practice. In a series of solos, duets and a final quartet, this crossover between percussion and live electronics is fully explored as the artists improvise in various combinations during the week."
- Bill Thompson
