Oren Ambarchi's works are hesitant and tense extended songforms located in the cracks between several schools: modern electronics and processing; layered improvisation and minimalism; hushed, pensive songwriting; the deceptive simplicity and temporal suspensions of composers such as Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier; and the physicality of rock music, slowed down and stripped back to its bare bones, abstracted and replaced with pure signal.

At Resonance, Ambarchi shares his unique sound-world of deep, visceral guitar abstraction combined with fragile, light-as-air textures made from glass harmonica, strings, bells, piano, drums, and percussion.
