Phrase Velocity

Phrase Velocity is virtuoso tabla soloist Ed Hanley joining forces with Toronto electronic musician/drone artist Jonathan Adjemian for a long-form cyclic confabulation on rhythmic patterns and sine waves. Solo tabla is a sophisticated drumming tradition from North India with a vast vocabulary and myriad forms, featuring rich and slowly evolving rhythmic poetry presented in a layered kaleidosonic blur. Adjemian will be manipulating Hanley’s high-speed patterns using analog and computer-generated synths over a bed of pure sawtooth and sine waves. This performance will include a new long-form video work from Tala-Wallah Cathode Ray Science.
