Daedelus in Austin in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Instrumental hip hop/electronic production vet Daedelus has a number of dates coming up this year, including multiple US festivals like Moogfest and Hangout Fest. Just before Hangout Fest, he'll be in NYC for two appearances.
The first is part of this year's Red Bull Music Academy Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets which happens on May 14 at Town Hall, and also features fellow electronic producer Shigeto guitar greats Marc Ribot and Nels Cline, David Byrne/Amanda Palmer collaborator Jherek Bischoff, New Orleans R&B veteran Allen Toussaint, ex-P-Funk member Amp Fiddler, free jazz veteran David Murray, that dog. member Petra Haden, and more. Tickets for that show are on sale now. More info on the event, which is curated by RBMA and Undead Music, here.
The day after the Round Robin Duets show, Daedelus and Shigeto will team up once again for another Undead Music-presented show at Littefield (5/15) in Brooklyn. That show is with jazz drummer Mark Guiliana, bassist Eivind Opsvik, and cornetist/trumpeter Graham Haynes. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Meanwhile, you can also see Daedelus not far from NYC TONIGHT (4/17) at Princeton University in the college's Terrace Club. Joining him is Delaware's No Sir E.
