Sontag Shogun (NYC/Montreal)
& Michael Barker (Philly)

Sontag Shogun is a collaborative trio + one that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. They have recently joined collaborative forces with Alex Beth Schapiro, a live scentscape artist to bring olfactory narratives and abstracted engagement with physical space to music. Textures built from organic materials such as sand, slate, boiling water, brush and dried leaves, both produced live in performance and recorded to weathered 1/4" tape warm up the space between lush piano themes. All of which is abstracted coolly in the reflective digital space of treated vocals and a live-processed feed from the piano. Bringing us back, like a faded passing scent or any natural emotive trigger, but to where? The wordless journey there will inevitably be more revealing than the destination itself.
