Che Chen


Che Chen is a sound artist and improviser based in Brooklyn and Stonybrook, New York. Largely a self-taught musician, Che uses the violin, guitar and other musical and “non-musical” objects in works that explore his interests in perceptual phenomena and improvisation. His recent solo performances have consisted of improvisations based on the harmonic overtones of idiosyncratic tunings (scordatura) for the violin, played against sine wave pedal points.

Che Chen is a sound artist and improviser based in Brooklyn and Stonybrook, New York. Largely a self-taught musician, Che uses the violin, guitar and other musical and “non-musical” objects in works that explore his interests in perceptual phenomena and improvisation. His recent solo performances have consisted of improvisations based on the harmonic overtones of idiosyncratic tunings (scordatura) for the violin, played against sine wave pedal points. Che’s interests in difference tones (closely tuned pitches that result in beating patterns), phasing, repetition, decay, the spacialization of sounds, and the structural relationship between “audience” and “performer” have led him to use a variety of methods that include using analog tape delay systems, loops and manipulation, placing acoustic and electronic sound sources in various locations around the performance area, and generally eschewing the idea of “the stage”.

He is interested in music and sound principally as a means of being in time; as a way of radically inhabiting the present. Che has toured in the U.S., Europe and Japan, presenting solo performances and collaborations with Jozef Van Wissem (Heresy of the Free Spirit), Robbie Lee, Chie Mukai, Tetuzi Akiyama and other spontaneous and ongoing configurations. Che is also one half of the band, True Primes, and has collaborated with artists, Mary Walling Blackburn and Sherlock Terry. Solo and collaborative recordings have been released on Locust, Incunabulum, Autumn, Telegraph Harp and Pilgrim Talk Records. As an anthologist, he has produced the private press artists’ magazine, O Sirhan, O Sirhan, a publication inspired by Wallace Berman’s Semina, Aspen Journal and the Fluxus design work of George Maciunas, and Attention Patterns, a 2 LP + 48 page booklet set featuring minimalist works by Pauline Oliveros, Eliane Radigue, Yoshi Wada and Sun Circle.

He runs his own label, Black Pollen Press, as an outlet for these and other endeavors. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
