Gardener, Duet for Theremin, Lap Steel
Fri., Nov. 11, 9 p.m. 2016
From the venue:Here are some of the mental images that arise when listening to Gardener, the moniker of Richmond, Virginia-based Dash Lewis: Waking up from a fever dream, disoriented and yet possessed with an earthly calm; putting an ear to a seashell and hearing the most majestic (and vaguely extraterrestrial) frequencies; discovering transcendence in an evangelical AM broadcast. Using just vocal loops, a modular synth, and some pedals, Lewisâ€™ music evokes tranquility in purgatory, a state of calm even in dissonance. For a moment, all anxiety disappears, as the horizon â€” somehow more fluorescent than usual â€” blurs with the heavens.
