They’ve opened for Devo, Beats Antique, and Melvins and have headlined Fantastic Fest three years in a row.
Dan Deacon (b. 1981) is an American composer and performer whose work focuses on a maximalist approach to density with a fixation on sample manipulation, synthesis, mechanical instruments and audience collaboration. The bulk of Deacon’s recorded work are his 8 solo electronic LPs, most recently Gliss Riffer (2015) and America (2012). Collaborations and commissions included work for Kronos Quartet, Bang On A Can All-Stars, Sō Percussion, Calder Quartet, and the LA Philharmonic. His music served as the score for Justin Peck’s New York City Ballet’s piece ‘The Times Are Racing’ (2017) and he has scored several feature films including ‘Twixt’ (Francis Ford Coppola, 2011), ‘Rat Film’ (Theo Anthony, 2016), and ‘Time Trial’ (Finlay Pretsell, 2017). Over the past decade he has relentlessly toured internationally with a wide range of artists including Lightning Bolt, Miley Cyrus, Arcade Fire, Doug Aitken and The Flaming Lips. His compositions and arrangements have premiered at Carnegie Hall, the Barbican Centre, Lincoln Center and Walt Disney Concert Hall. Deacon’s music is released via Domino Records. He lives in Baltimore, MD.
