A New Gestural Instrument for Electronic Percussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The AirSticks are a one-of-a-kind gestural electronic drum kit. Designed by Mark Havryliv and Alon Ilsar in Sydney, Austrlai, this new 3D timbral Theremin allows the triggering and manipulation of sounds and visuals, and the live sampling and manipulation of other instruments in a 3D virtual space, completely blurring the line between drumming, sound designing and dancing. Over the last two years, Alon has performed regularly with the AirSticks with musicians, dancers, visual artists and actors, in both composed and improvised context. In this presentation Alon will demostrate the workings of the AirSticks and their constantly evolving nature.
