Artist: Patrick O'Reilly/Nilan Perera/Mark Zurawinski
Song: [1st piece, in two parts]
Recorded at The Tranzac's Southern Cross Lounge (Synaptic Circus Sundays), August 26, 2018.
This trio, with Mark Zurawinski holding down the drum chair alongside two of the city's finest guitarists covered a lot of ground. This first piece heard here reads as menacing psychedelic music, with Perera looping a bassline and roaring along while O'Reilly fills in the fine details. From there, they launched into loop/delay interspace and extended techniques, complete with thumb piano and swizzle sticks.
[Synaptic Circus returns to The Tranzac on Sunday, October 28th, with Heidi Chan and Nic Murray each playing solo sets before joining together as a duo.]
