Psychedelic dub

Pangani fuses otherworldly soundscapes, driving rhythms and deep basslines into adventurous dub worlds. As a wizard of consciousness, Pangani explores various realms of immersive concert experiences to expand his universe of musical expression.

A multi-sensorial performance, which uses spatial sound, coloured light and diffused essential oils to explore perceptions of sound.

The whole music setup functions as an instrument in itself, which makes use of experimental live instruments and digital dub techniques, to playfully explore new sonic territories.

An immersive Audio / Visual experience, where kaleidoscopic fluids are dancing to enhance imaginary aspects of music.

In Ritual

In Ritual is a synesthetic live performance, which merges spatial music, environment lighting and vaporised scents, to create a multi-sensorial concert experience.

Light scenes and essential oil mixtures are carefully composed to enhance the musical experience, by taking multiple sensorial aspects of the body into account.

Instruments

Field-recordings and sound designed elements meet the Foleyboard, a self-built percussive synthesizer.

My approach to Live music finds its roots in techniques, developed by Jamaican Dub legends like King Tubby or Scratch Perry in the 1970s. I use a custom built 8-channel mixer with LP/HP filters on each channel and a separate SpaceEcho effect on a touch device. Studio produced sounds can be dubbed (combined and manipulated) while playing. It feels like reshaping puzzle-pieces as you assemble the overall picture during a performance.

The Foleyboard is an analog/digital space machine. Its played with any real world object, which makes sound as it hits the vibration sensitive wooden board. The picked up noise is manipulated by a versatile effect system and transforms it into a morphing sound sculpture. This setup gives me the possibility to react in the moment and brings theatrical elements into my live shows.

InVision

InVision is an immersive Audio / Visual experience, where mesmerising kaleidoscopic fluids enhance the musical sensation.

The visuals are real-time generated by a homegrown video synthesizer, I started to develop in 2017 . It uses a choreographed fluid simulation, which listens to the live music and responses in morphing kaleidoscopic landscapes. While working with this visual instrument, my main interest is the creation of morphing spaces, by playing with repetition, movement, color, form and depth.

Workshop

Ambient Music Lab is an open workshop, where participants are invited to explore the depth of our sonic world with the creation of floating ambient music.

I’m always looking for set and settings to open the Ambient Music Lab for new people. Please get in contact if you want to connect and share ideas.

The Lab is an extended version of the Pangani live music setup in ambient mode, where different types of microphones/pickups (Air, Surface, Water,  Electromagnetic,.. ) are connected to discover hidden sonic landscapes around the workshop space. Visitors are encouraged to play, explore, listen, improvise,.. to open up their ears to little sounds, which are mostly filtered out by daily routines.

Its about free/basal sonic expression without the need of any musical knowledge, sparking audible curiosities in everything and making ourself more aware of our sonic realities in daily life.

About

As a sonic wizard, Pangani fuses otherworldly soundscapes, driving rhythms and deep basslines into adventurous psychedelic dub. Detailed synth work is braided with flashes of vocals and acoustic instruments to create bubbling and pressurized sound worlds.

In kiswahili, the word “Pangani” describes a place of spirits, where energy can be felt and vibrations make you move.

Pangani is formed by Sebastian Frisch in 2014. His musical journey guided him through reggae bands, street-music in kenyan hoods, sound-art installations and various electronic music explorations all around the world. During his master studies, he started to develop his performance setup. Instruments like the foleyboard enable the artist to freely play in the moment and let his audience experience the magic of electronic live music.
Pangani self-released his two Albums Superdeep (2019) and In The Moment (2016) through a crowdfunding campaigns. His tours brought him to many beautiful festivals like BOOM Festival [PT], Psy-Fi Festival  [NL], TodaysArt Festival [NL] and Latitude Festival (Solas) [NL].

Family

Each one of those wonderful people poured a little of their soul into the Pangani universe and helped shaping it into its current form.
