Birmingham, AL - Solo Show

  • A Bryan Photo

Join Dan Phelps for an evening of semi-ambient, fully enveloping music at A Bryan Photo's studio in the Phoenix Building.

Dan is an artist/musician/producer living on Bainbridge Island outside of Seattle, WA. His improvisation based work travels deep into the details of texture and timbre. His releases include Modular, a collaboration with Matt Chamberlain and Viktor Krauss, and his latest release, Arc, which is built on improvisations with drumming legend Jim Keltner. In his live performances, Dan improvises walls of ambience and shifting textures, moving seamlessly from abstract sheets of celestial sound, roots guitar, and astringent noise.

When: 
Doors at 7:30pm, show starts at 8pm.

His releases include Modular, a collaboration with Matt Chamberlain and Viktor Krauss, and his latest release, Arc, which is built on improvisations with drumming legend Jim Keltner.

Other special notes: this is a standing room only show, unless you want to bring a lawn chair, or even a mat to lay down on. I'm serious about the mat. You could totally bliss out on the floor.

His releases include Modular, a collaboration with Matt Chamberlain and Viktor Krauss, and his latest release, Arc, which is built on improvisations with drumming legend Jim Keltner.
