TANYA NORMAN

Complicit is an exploration of modern techno and an experiment in musical partnership for contributing members Tanya and Travis Norman. Longtime enthusiastic supporters of Minneapolis talent, the duo was looking for a way to translate that inspiration into a statement of their own. They found it by crafting a production and performance workflow running identical controllers manipulating a single system. The resulting symmetry and real time dynamics, a balancing act of duties divided by frequency range, are an invitation to become “complicit participants” in the pair’s potentially criminal acts of dancefloor destruction.

Early forays into performance have witnessed the duo making good their commitment to manifest a favorite Minneapolis slogan: “Keep Techno Sexy.”  Whether contributing to the renowned Black nights at First Avenue or to intimate after hours events, the vibe has been sweaty, sultry, and designed for dancing.  Fans who witness the extra level of communication evident in non-verbal cues dictating build up and release of the material realize quickly the strength of connection between the two musicians .  Meanwhile, the improvisational aspects of the pair’s presentation translate to a potent in-the-moment awareness, one that spreads easily from performer to listener until each is enveloped in a unified experience of Complicit’s relentless rhythm.
