Domingues and Kane

FRINGE Music in the Library :: Domingues and Kane

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

12 p.m.
Amy Domingues and Dennis Kane mesh the tranquil sounds of a 500 year old stringed instrument with electronics to create an organic blend of technology and musicianship that transcends genre. Their music is built on musical traditions equally ancient and contemporary. Amy Domingues creates hauntingly delicate melodies performed with an electronically treated viola da gamba (a predecessor to the cello), while Dennis Kane constructs rich soundscapes and accompaniments via electronics and keyboards.
