Hang Massive

Max Watts

Melbourne, AU

March 22, 2017

Shaped much like a spaceship, the Hang’s ( a musical instrument of the idiophone class)  equally ethereal sounds created by Danny Cudd (UK) and Markus Offbeat (Sweden) delighted the audience at Melbourne’s Max Watts, where the due was promoting their latest studio release, Distant Light. Given the sounds the two seasoned travelers produce with their hangs, it is not surprising to learn that their paths first crossed in Goa, India.

While one hang does not produce sufficient notes for a full scale, it works in well in unison with a second one as collectively chords and varying tones can be created, i.e. one hang providing the beat while the other one is in charge of the actual melody.

Cudd and Offbeat, the due comprising Hang Massive, have mastered the art of work the hang from various angles and thereby eliciting an impressively deep and rich sound spectrum reminiscent of a mélange of an array of xylophones, psychedelic electronic sounds and bell sounds and percussion instruments.

With vocals added here and there, courtesy of  Victoria Grebezs, it gives the performance the aura of a “regular show” with the enhanced vibe of with outer- and otherworldly sounds.
