Who ARE Nick Hennies and Bromp Treb?

Nick Hennies, Bromp Treb, and the Stranahan-Miralia duo are playing at Fairchild Chapel on March 17 at 9:30 PM. FB Event.

Nick Hennies

Why should I watch a man play nothing but a single snare drum for twenty minutes? Because that man is Nick Hennies.

Nick Hennies is about as versatile as someone who bangs on things  for a living can get. Classically trained, he studied with renowned contemporary music guru Steve Schick at UC-San Diego. He then found himself in Austin, where he co-founded critically acclaimed band The Weird Weeds. Meanwhile, he also became known for his performances of experimental contemporary music by composers like John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Peter Ablinger, and even revered outsider artist Jandek. He’s also a composer in his own right. So saying Nick Hennies would be doing nothing but playing a single snare drum for twenty minutes is like saying you’d be doing nothing but listening to a single Pink Floyd album for twenty minutes. Yes, I am saying that a single snare drum can equal a Pink Floyd album in depth and complexity. If you’re not a huge fan of Pink Floyd, it will surpass it easily. Just don’t expect him to do any covers.

If Nick Hennies is the stoic liberator of hidden sounds, Bromp Treb is the court jester peddling the wonderful and weird. Perhaps you know him as a member of celebrated avant-rock masters Fat Worm of Error (Oberlin visitors just a couple years back). Bromp Treb is a surprise at every turn, a ritual-like hodgepodge of noises and dramatic gestures, mixed up so much until you’re not sure what is man and what is machine.
