James Meger’s How To Do Nothing
IronFest: A Fall Concert Series
This music isn’t shy about exploring extreme emotional dynamics or diverse sonic influences, moving gutsily between free improvisation, electro-acoustic composition, jazz, metal, noise, and song. Led by bassist James Meger, the newly formed ensemble skillfully pulls listeners through trashed maximalist howls of feedback and noise to emerge in clearings of delicate acoustic improvisation. It’s a voyage through the supersaturated dirt of janky electronics to the purity of handmade sound, but even that isn’t always what it seems. At its core, this project explores the wild scope of human experience while teasing our confusion between the fake and the real; the most soulful cries come from broken machines. With Andromeda Monk, no-input mixer, saxophone; Lisa Cay Miller, piano; Sam King, guitar; James Meger, bass, compositions; Jesus Caballero, drums.
