Electro-acoustic composer and instrumentalist Andy Hayleck is a quiet storm of the Baltimore experimental music scene, a virtuoso of sound whose range of highly developed projects and approaches is dizzying - spanning everything from jazz and ska guitar to musique concrete and the invention of new instruments and electro-acoustic systems.
Hayleck "enjoy[s] collaborating with animate and inanimate objects." In the animate realm, he has worked with free improvisors, drum'n'bass djs, pop and ska groups, experimental musical instrument builders and artists. In the inanimate realm he has worked with vibrating metal systems of one, two and three dimensions, air, water, and electricity.He currently plays in the ensemble Aerotrain (a group that performs compositions on instruments built by Neil Feather) and Heavy Things, as well as solo (primarily with his own, highly original amplified gong/wire and live electronics).
