Thomas Fang presents: Tunneling

Two excursions are scheduled: 8:30 and 9:15pm, Friday June 17

This event is full!

Tunneling the second in an annual series of outdoor, site-specific sound installations presented at NMASS.

Audience members will meet at the Bull Creek Greenbelt, and will be led on a brief hike to a large tunnel. Inside, everyone will be asked to extinguish lights and be seated in darkness for 30 minutes, accompanied by an abstract soundscape of drones and sonic textures composed for the space.

Artist Bio:
Thomas Fang is a sound artist based in Austin. After establishing himself as a DJ at KVRX and at Radio One Austin (a pirate station shut down by the FCC), he co-founded the Artificial Music Machine record label in 2001. Since then, he has performed experimental music under his own name and as Static Storm System, and has collaborated with other musicians as part of Inversion Effect. Utilizing found sound, field recordings, radio transmissions, circuit-bent electronic devices and other non-traditional instrumentation, he explores sonic territory ranging from glitchy noise assaults to darkambient drones. Mr. Fang is also conductor of the Furby Youth Choir, a small army of modified toys which have terrorized audiences at Bent Festival (NYC), Burning Man (Nevada), and local events such as Maker Faire, Art Outside, Burning Flipside, East Austin Studio Tour, and Fusebox Festival. When not working on personal projects or teaching circuit bending workshops, Mr. Fang assembles handmade analog and digital synthesizers for Bleep Labs.
