Dan Deacon, America

Dan Deacon, the pride of Baltimore and godfather of modern electronic symphonies, describes his new album as such: “Compositionally, America is layering of dichotomies: light and dark, acoustic and synthetic, celebration and contemplation. The result can be heard as simple or complex depending on how one listens to it. The music is rooted in triadic harmony set to a fixed pulse while the individual lines are complex, phasing layers of sound. The outcomes are dense asymmetrically rhythmic phrases of textured patterns framed as pop songs.” Very representative of people and cultures that make up America, a melting pot that has found its own rhythm and style.
