Hanna Hartman and Distractfold Ensemble will be discussing “Dust Devil”, a work commissioned in 2017 for violin, bass clarinet, tape and two object operators working with amplified salt. They will discuss the process of working with amplified objects in the context of a chamber ensemble, and the unique challenges that arise from performing them within a complex blend of instrumental and electronic sounds. Distractfold and Hanna have developed a close working relationship over the last 4 years, and will also discuss their process of collaboration.
