Nano Twin was a collaborative audio-visual group featuring Ryan Wade Ruehlen / Mark Banzhoff / Melanie Clemmons / Zak Loyd .
Nano Twin formed during autumn 2012 in Colorado. An obsessive layering and melding of various time-based media informs this four-piece group. Weaving through each others technologies produces intricate patterns, droning, auditory improvisations and technical-informational spoken word compositions. They imagine a narrative overlap between the rational-scientific mode of our society and alchemical and ritualized procedures. This crossbreeding of technologies range from high definition, immersive projection, concrete sonic amplification, lo-fi gestures and sound production as well as analog sculptures, such as televisions, trays, diagrams, cables, etc.
