i’ll be performing at the black dog on 8/22 from 5:30-7:30pm collaborating with pianist and composer todd harper. we will be improvising together using the piano as source to feed my modified tape machines to layer and manipulate the instrument.

reworking tracks from ‘tiger flower circle sun’ by christopher willits as part of his remix project. these tracks were done in a period of a day. i used the stems provided by christopher willits and combined them with my approach to creating and layering live tape loops with additional real time acoustic guitar instrumentation with the intention of creating a new suite of works.
for samples, tape and acoustic guitar
played an improvised session with promethean k. frimsk recently. the intention was to record percussive audio demonstrations for a short run of contact microphone surfaces that will be for sale soon, but the session evolved into us just improvising off of each other for a while. the following are two excerpts taken from the session.
promethean k. frimsk : contact microphone surface, percussion, objects, toy piano, resonant filter.
david andree : acoustic guitar, contact microphone surface, brushes, objects, 2880, tape loop.
From a series of gatherings put on by artist jared smyth where friends get together and make music, art, video etc. This video documents an excerpt of a long-form improvisation involving myself (david andree), john keston and jared smyth on 6-26-2011.
my instruments for the session included acoustic guitar, melodica, brushes, contact mics, 2880, modified 4-track loaded with cassette tape loops, and a reel to reel with a closed tape loop. john keston was playing the roland june-106, triggering the roland mks-80 with the gms, and playing acoustic piano. jared smyth was running grainslide and cutting live loops from everyone’s signals. jared smyth did the final mixing, shot and edited the documentation video.
