Gregory Allison & Slow Meadow

April 14, 8:00 pm11:00 pm

$15 – $20

Holy Volcano and Solar Culture present a night of transportive neoclassical soundscapes by two visionary composers.

Gregory Allison creates with a single violin a sound that travels across great landscapes. He has toured the world with violin in hand and is endlessly inspired by the instrument’s journey around the globe, especially its use in South Indian Classical music. His live performance blends the Indian Classical melodic improvisation with his classical sensibility as a film composer, offering the listener a sonic journey through time and space.

He will be performing his 2021 debut album Portal in its entirety, along with new compositions for amplified violin and local Santa Fe string trio.

In 2023, Allison traveled to Kerala, India to work with his South Indian Classical teacher of ten years, Peroor Jayaprakash. The violin duo performed in Hindu temples with the classical Carnatic ensemble, and recorded a set of nine classical pieces with a new fusion ensemble for the largest media company in Kerala, The Manorama. He is crrently collaborating with electronic composers to create ReWorked versions of the music from his debut solo record Portal. The first two pieces on the ReWorked album, “Portal” and “Veritas” were reworked by Kalaido and Tristan de Liege will be released on Holy Volcano on March 8 and March 29, 2024, respectively.

Slow Meadow is Houston multi-instrumentalist Matt Kidd. Kidd’s releases as Slow Meadow have been celebrated by the New York Observer, NPR’s Stephen Thompson, Echoes’ John Diliberto, and 6LACK who sampled “Lachrymosia” for the platinum-selling song on his debut album, FREE 6LACK. With a foundation of piano, string orchestration, and an ever-evolving electronic palette, Slow Meadow traverses the borders of neoclassical and minimalist electronic.
