    Opensound is a monthly concert series that explores improvised and experimental music, bringing artists from disparate backgrounds together for unique events in Somerville MA. The process of improvisation combines the distinctive voices of its individual performers. The music that results is often surprising, unconventional and dynamic. It s not uncommon to hear music made of electronic crackles, noisy multi-phonics, gurgling, hissing, quiet vocalized gibberish, atonal noodling, bowed metal, blowing sounds, post-everything harmony, and a thousand shades of hullabaloo.

    You may also see video and dance cohabitating with buzzes, clicks, drones, wooshes, and bleeps in a bizarre galaxy of pitch and spectra!

Using the piano and synthesizer along with laptop and electronics, his work floats between brute force and careful contemplation.

    Best known as the "Moogist", Tsang explores the use of the Minimoog in various music genres and artistic media, and collaborates with music producers, composers, dancers/choreographers, and visual artists from Germany, Japan, Canada, and the US. His expansive creative processes are documented online over a span of over 120 videos. He has given numerous solo performances at concert halls, art galleries, churches, nightclubs, and more, and has also performed/toured with various bands/groups: Business For Pleasure, Complicated Handshake, Elizabeth Poe, GB3, 25 Hours a Day, and ElephantFeedMonkey.
