Private Sea Private Sea w/Orbital Decay - 10 December 2022

In their interrogation of atmosphere, the electronic duo of Private Sea commands the sound, the weight, taste and texture of synthesized tones. From fuming, vigorous and urging, down to the softest susurration of truthful timbral rumination, Alex Mitchell and Ryan Todd navigate between Spacemusic's tidal drone zones and ethereal washes, on up to a lively braindance of melody, rhythm and pulse.

Orbital Decay Listening to the music of Orbital Decay one would believe that digital synthesizers had never been invented. Existing on a plane outside the oppressive rush of modernity, their work quotes the classics of Spacemusic without mimicking them. Synthesist Terry Furber and guitarist Scott Watkins demonstrate a masterful grasp of the vintage gear around which the spacemusic genre gravitates and explore the past in a new way.

Private Sea w/Orbital Decay performed live at The Gatherings Concert Series on Saturday 10 December 2022 at St Mary's Hamilton Village in Philadelphia

Concert Announcement

Vic Hennegan RESCHEDULED: Vic Hennegan w/Huron - 5 November 2022

Vic Hennegan is part of a brotherhood that spans continents and centuries. His innovative works trace a through line from the birth of synthesizers to today's rock/pop tinged global grooves. Performing with the confidence of the musically well-traveled Hennegan mixes his experiences into vivid sonic statements. Creamy synth leads buzz, hum and unfurl in a meandering ribbon of notes as a mechanistic patterns motor away in the reverent soundspace. While body swaying sensuous beats magically morph into a staccato arpeggio of echoing electro-blips, breathy harmonies and glittering effects advance and recede. In these cosmic chronicles we find Hennegan's exuberance is contagious - as his music aims to heighten our sensitivities and common yearnings for a better world.

Johnny Lancia Johnny Lancia realizes blissed-out ambient works and concerts under the name Huron. His music is filled with heady drones and intriguing rhythms that reflect the natural world - filtered through a variety of modular synthesizers, analog electronics and delay manipulation processes.

Vic Hennegan w/Huron performed at The Gatherings Concert Series on Saturday 5 November 2022 at St Mary's Hamilton Village in Philadelphia..
