‘These Predicaments’

Drones, ambient textures and slowly developing melodies created with manipulated field recordings, reel-to-reel tape recordings, zither and electric guitar. A sonic landscape that takes the listener on a melancholic journey.

‘Masses’ (double CD)

Prepared electric guitars, haunting zither melodies, manipulated field recordings, guitars bowed with metal files are used to create ambient soundscapes that transport the listener to an otherworldly reality.

 


Geoff Gersh explores the sonic boundaries of the electric guitar with and without the aide of electronic devices and found objects to produce sounds one would normally not associate with the guitar.

Geoff works with filmmakers, choreographers, painters and plays in various bands in NYC.  He performs live music to silent films monthly at the Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg with his bands Black Lodge & Reel Orchestrette.

He has been awarded grants by Meet the Composer, American Music Center, New York Foundation for the Arts, a residency by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and received a New York Dance & Performance Award (Bessie).
