A new version of the apocalyptic Shofar+ patch will be used by Alvin Curran during his next gig in Athens.
The Shofar+ patch is a huge Max/MSP Live Electronics device I built following Alvin’s instruction
“The concert will be brought to a close with a performance of Alvin Curran’s Shofar in a new version specially written for Tectonics Athens. Featuring Schulkowsky on a range of percussion, a reinforced cactus, wooden and cardboard boxes etc. and Curran playing the shofar, an ancient Jewish instrument made out of a ram’s horn, the primitive monophonic sounds produced by the latter, so redolent of Jewish religious rites, will be processed electronically in real time.”
Sunday 18 at the Onassis Cultural Centre for Tectonics Athens
