Arnold Dreyblatt at Epsilon Spires

Arnold Dreyblatt at Epsilon Spires. Famous for his transcendental and ecstatic music, legendary composer and multi-media artist Arnold Dreyblatt’s live performances emerge from his decades-long practice of building and preparing his instruments and exploring the incidental harmonic discoveries made when they are played.

Arnold Dreyblatt (b. New York City, 1953) is an American media artist and composer who has been based in Berlin, Germany, since 1984. A student of first-generation minimalists Pauline Oliveros, La Monte Young, and Alvin Lucier, Dreyblatt invented his tuning system early in his career. He enacts this method as a solo artist, often percussively playing an upright bass, and with his ensemble, the Orchestra of Excited Strings.

In 2007, Dreyblatt became deputy director of the visual arts section at the German Academy of Art (Akademie der Künste, Berlin). He was also a Professor of Media Art at the Muthesius Academy of Art and Design in Kiel, Germany, from 2009 to 2022.

One of the second generation of New York minimal composers, Dreyblatt studied music with Pauline Oliveros, La Monte Young, and Alvin Lucier and media art with Woody and Steina Vasulka. His early activities in music and performance included the albums “Nodal Excitation,” “Propellers In Love,” “The Sound of One String,” and the opera project “Who’s Who in Central and East Europe 1933.”

Arnold Dreyblatt has charted his unique course in composition and music performance. He has invented new and original instruments, performance techniques, and a tuning system. Often characterized as one of the more rock-oriented American minimalists, Dreyblatt has cultivated a strong underground base of fans for his transcendental and ecstatic music with his “Orchestra of Excited Strings.”

The Bang has performed his music On A Can All-Stars in New York, Jim O’Rourke, The Great Learning Orchestra in Stockholm, Pellegrini String Quartet, and the Crash Ensemble Dublin. He has recorded for such labels as Tzaddik, Hat Hut, Table of the Elements, Cantaloupe, Important, Choose, and Black Truffle. Dreyblatt has taught music workshops resulting in performed compositions with musicians at “The Music Gallery”, Toronto; MIT Boston, Serralves Foundation, Porto and many others. He has performed with and without his ensemble at the Whitney Museum in New York; the Maerz Music Festival, Berlin; the Angelika Festival, Bologna; The Lab in San Francisco, Berghain Berlin; and countless other festivals and concert venues in Europe and North America.
