Dan Joseph, Dulcimer Flight

Performing Arts - Music | March 2 | 8-10 p.m. |  CNMAT (1750 Arch St.)

 Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT)

In his solo works for electroacoustic hammer dulcimer, for which he uses the title Dulcimer Flight, Dan constructs contemplative soundscapes that slowly unfold over the course of 30-minutes to one-hour. With roots in early minimalism, ambient music and acoustic ecology, these long-form “journeys” combine composed elements, often in the form of a fixed melodic pattern, with extensive improvisation while exploring the dulcimer’s rich harmonic properties. Using a mix of traditional and experimental (extended) techniques in combination with his self-designed laptop-based processing system, Dan gives this ancient instrument and entirely new and contemporary identity.
