My name is Klimchak.
Klimchak is one of the most interesting percussionist/musicians/composers I know. When you see him live you are constantly asking yourself, or the person next to you, “What is that” in reference to some instrument(s)(?) that you have never seen or heard before. Found objects, an electronic xylophone thing, sheet metal, kick drums and kazoos are just a fraction of the percussive and non-percussive instruments I’ve seen this guy play and usually all at the same time. —redoubtblog.com
Atlanta composer Klimchak provides fiendishly fun musical accompaniment and sound effects from a variety of bizarre instruments, even a theremin for spectral noises. —Curt Holman, Creative Loafing
Klimchak’s woozy score enhances the text; it’s a drum kit of horror and psychological suspense, punctuated by what sounded like an Aboriginal didgeridoo. —Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal Constitution
This is a rehearsal for a new piece I’m working on for the Asheville Electro-Music Festival in May 2015. Speaking NonSynths uses live looping didgeridoo & vocals as a bed for solo improvised theremin. Effects used are pitch shifting, delay, and filter effects.
