About the performances and performers:
Inspired by the Serenity Prayer, Matthew Daher‘s “The Wisdom To Know the Difference” is an exploration of control on both a sonic and a spiritual level. Vocals and acoustic drums processed, blended with lush textures, triggering other sonic events at varying degrees of randomness. A song-structured web of intended and unintended sonic consequences emerges, inspired by artists such as Mount Eerie, Björk, J Dilla, and Fiona Apple. An inquiry into the limits of control, the ease/suffering of clarity/confusion around those limits. The ever-shifting nature of those limits. An analogy in sound for these human predicaments.”
[MIIIIM] is a musical project based in the heart of the former (and future) glacial chasm that is Ohio. This project seeks to delicately synthesize an array of motifs: symmetry, reggae sets, radical politics, harmonic and geometric progressions, and infinity, among others. The music consists largely of long-forgotten treasures, hidden agendas, minutiae, happy accidents, and psychedelia, very often evoking a sense of vague familiarity–perhaps even nostalgia–despite its overtly alien topography. [MIIIIM] hopes that all is well.
