Sound/ Simulacra with deVon Gray + Cody McKinney & John Keston
December 27, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
$10 admission. $5 with student ID. Doors open 15 minutes before music starts.
John C.S. Keston and Cody McKinney present: Sound / Simulacra: A monthly series which explores musical improvisation as a “faithful and intentionally distorted” representational process. Sound / Simulacra will bring together some of the Twin Cities most unique voices to “recreate, distort, and create the hyperreal.”
This month’s featured artist is deVon R. Gray:
“deVon R. Gray may be the world’s last cultural enigma. The multi-instrumentalist, classically trained composer is as comfortable writing orchestral and operatic works as he is churning out jazz riffs and hip hop bravado. His breadth of knowledge saturates various instruments, multiple genres, and limitless styles. And he does it all so effortlessly even he is unaware that he’s working. While many creators spend hours perfecting their craft & skills, dVRG, as he is known, envisions the pen and watches the music write itself.”
Patrick Pegg will join deVon on the first set on electronics. John Keston and Cody McKinney will join in for the second set.
Presented by John Keston and Cody McKinney
