ORANGOTANGO - VOLTAGE CONTROLLED SOUNDS


Kazike has built analogue sound synthesizer already in the 70ths. After a break of some decades he started again to develop modular synthesizers within the network of CLUB OF THE KNOBS. Since the foundation of ORANGOTANGO in 2004 he has performed several solo concerts, developed sound environments for unusual spaces and visual artists, composed film sounds and played together with various musicians and performers.

Since Kazike has constructed his synthesizers by himself, he is able to perform truly live - without using any recorded sound material, without computers - generating sound by the mere use of voltage!

A sua música é do cosmos da electricidade pura, a sua narrativa a da surpresa e da hipnose analógica, o seu aparato o de um cientista zen do som absoluto. Rara aparição ao vivo de uma lenda secreta..." (www.filhounico.com)
