Our April Experimental Coffee House
MICHAEL ROSENSTEIN and HOWARD MARTIN DUO
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA 02445
MICHAEL ROSENSTEIN (amplified objects and electronics) and HOWARD MARTIN (tenor sax, soprano sax, clarinet, trumpet) are Boston-based improvisers who explore the interaction of acoustic and electronic sounds as a duo, as members of the groups HMQ and Deluezer, as well as in various ad hoc groupings. In their duo, reed instrument harmonics and overtones, amplified surfaces, and home-made electronics form mutable striations, moving from transparent detail to dense layers. They exploit the interface of resonant frequencies and amplification, collectively feeding off of the resultant unstable sonic events.
