“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).
