seymour - andreatta, raymond, sage

 

gianni andreatta, zander raymond, and matthew sage come together as a rare trio to create live and improvisatory tenderness and electronic felicity on "seymour." the three, whose individual hands become almost undistinguishable in this formation, combine lush melodic impressions for guitar and synthesis nestled between nettlesome electro-acoustic textures and plinking digital utterances. Samples and guitar become arboreal architecture that air and light move through fluidly. guided as much by chance operation as by intuition, these 15 motions present a specific and organic form of home-grown digital impressionism.
