Zammuto with Eluvium (at McGuire Theater, Walker Art Center)Walker Art Center and The Cedar present
“…the nimble, the knotty, the philosophical and the pensive… Mr. Zammuto likes his music stratified, with different layers moving at different speeds, nested mathematically.” —New York Times
Alt-pop conjurer Nick Zammuto (formerly of the Books duo) returns to the Walker with his cerebral and hyper-catchy electro-pop defined by dexterous musicianship and jaw-dropping rhythmic density. Building up meticulous layers of found sound samples, intricate rhythms, and hooky vocals and syncing his compositions with quick and expertly cut video sequencing, Zammuto offers a slyly silly and entirely fresh aural feast.
The emotive and sonically subtle textures of Portland-based Eluvium open the evening with a “majestic balance between his ambient and quasi-classical styles” (Pitchfork).
