Often characterized as one of the more rock-oriented of American minimalists, the Berlin-based composer and media artist Arnold Dreyblatt has cultivated a strong underground base of fans for his transcendental and euphoric music. The psych-folk band Megafaun will join Dreyblatt for a rare performance of works created as part of an ongoing, years-in-the-making collaboration, here taking its fullest incarnation yet. Megafaun, who will also perform a solo set, “has consistently pushed the boundaries of folk music by incorporating jazz, psychedelia and both experimental and acoustic rock” says NPR. “They tease out old ideas and combine them with new ones,” says Pitchfork, “affixing Appalachian folk to classic rock, ambient, avant garde, and a kind of musical entropy that pushes many of their songs into sputtering, oddly compelling noise.” Dreyblatt first worked with Megafaun in 2007, which resulted in an American tour performing new works that he composed expressly for the group. Recently reunited for the Hopscotch Festival in North Carolina, they recorded an album together in 2012 that will be released in the near future.
