FOR DIRECTIONS & FURTHER INFORMATION:
Synthesist Chuck van Zyl
and experimental guitarist Ombient
will conclude OTP's inaugural year on Saturday, December 4, capping an eclectic twelve months of vivid performances.
van Zyl has long been a part of the space music community in & around Philadelphia. Host of the long running radio program on WXPN, Star's End, and organizer/proprietor of the nearly two-decades-old Gatherings series of concerts, van Zyl's a veritable fixture across the many interfaces linking classic Berlin School, ambient, and freeform sequencer music. As a performer either solo or collaborating with others (long since noted on his early 90s Synkronos label's cassette releases, and over a number of CDs & CDRs), van Zyl has plied his trade most effectively via his arsenal of trusty analog synths and vintage keys, switching modes between Tangerine Dream/Klaus Schulze affectations and other, more obscure cosmic couriers with ease. Surely those influences will be keenly reflected in his newest release, Memoryspace
, available for sale at his performance.
Mike Hunter, aka drone/ambient guitar improvisor Ombient, started his musical career playing his father's electric bass through an old analog tape delay, producing strange and disturbing space/mood music. In Hunter's guise as Ombient, such sounds, being of a live and improvisational nature, are representative of the feeling of the moment in which they are initiated, using guitar, processed and layered with digital looping equipment, to produce near-symphonic levels of density and majestic beauty.
We hope to see you here at 2010's final OTP event.
