Aluminati – David Samas, Tom Nunn, Ian Saxton and Derek Drudge – presents its premiere performance using all metal instruments including aluminum rods suspended on inflated balloons (harmonic rods), stroke rods, end-struck rods, heat-bent rods (zing trees), bowls, chaseplate and other metallic paraphernalia. The harmonic and enharmonic chorus of tones are heard through varyingly dense harmonic/percussive textures with melodic elements, hocketing and other contrapuntal relationships, within an architectural compositional context.
RTD3 – Ron Heglin (trombone, voice), Tom Nunn (original instruments) and Doug Carroll (cello) – have played together for decades. Ron speaks, sings and chants songs and stories from unrecognizable languages. Tom brings his own unique sounds of an alien kind of music with his original instruments. Doug celloistically sings the melodies of a mind and soul divested of any sense of normalcy!
