Biography

The Orchestra of Excited Strings was founded by composer Arnold Dreyblatt in New York City in 1979 for the development and performance of his music compositions. Arnold Dreyblatt (b. New York City, 1953) is an American composer and visual artist. In his installations, performances and media works, Dreyblatt creates complex textual and spatial metaphors for memory which function as a media discourse on recollection and the archive. His installations, public artworks and performances have been exhibited and staged extensively in Europe. Among the second generation of New York minimal composers, Arnold Dreyblatt has developed a unique approach to composition and music performance. He has invented a set of new and original instruments, performance techniques, and a system of tuning. His compositions are based on harmonics, and thus just intonation, played either through a bowing technique he developed for his modified bass, and other modified and conventional instruments which he specially tuned.
