Dan Deacon: Opal Toad Segment
on 03 January 2017
Off a forthcoming experimental music compilation, I Said No Doctors!, from NYC-based music label Dymaxion Groove, musician Dan Deacon’s “Opal Toad Segment” conveys a different sort of chaotic charm than we’ve come to expect from the mastermind. Here, a vibrant tinkling—of “MIDI-triggered pinpoint notes from an acoustic grand piano”—rises and falls with a binaural boldness. It’s quite beautiful and entirely out of the ordinary.
