Daniel Lanois (Night of Heavy Sun: All instumental set) + Nosaj Thing + Tyondai Braxton + Dawn of Midi Please note this event is 16+
Daniel Lanois performs a solo set of songs from his latest album Goodbye to Language. Intermingling pedal and lap steel guitars, the set features material that powerfully demonstrates what happens when a visionary artist tosses aside preconceived limitations of song and/or language to explore the emotional resonance of pure soundscapes.
A profoundly expressive work, Goodbye to Language has gained critical acclaim and has a compositional rigour that recalls the 20th century dreamscapes of Ravel and Debussy merged with a sense of sonic futurism, as well as Lanois’ pivotal work with Eno and the sounds he used to form iconic albums like Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind.
LA producer Nosaj Thing performs music that reverberates through heart, brain and spine. His third album Fated has drawn comparisons with Burial’s Untrue or Dilla’s Donuts: requiems that canvass the shadowy hinterlands between life and death, darkness and light, loneliness and love.
Composer, electronic musician and former Battles front man, Tyondai Braxton brings together electronic and modern orchestral elements in his thrilling new solo show.
Opening the show are Brooklyn-based acoustic ensemble Dawn of Midi, whose sets are as energetic and rhythmic as a seamlessly mixed DJ-set, mesmerising fans in the same way the group's favourite experimental and electronic acts have for decades.
