Mikah Sykes, Alison Jane Clarys, Arrington de Dionyso

This event is in the past
Sat., April 30, 8 p.m. 2016
The Waypost Eliot (Portland)
While ever-present, explorative, and purposeful, the music of Arrington de Dionyso takes many forms. With the venerable K Records stalwarts Old Time Relijun, he presides over a swampy, stomping, black mass of shrieking garage funk. Malaikat dan Singa is similarly serrated, but more chanting and psychedelic. As a solo artist, Dionyso inhabits deep centers and meditational space with Tuvan throat singing, bass clarinet, and homemade instruments. His performances are spiritual, animalistic, and immersive, as he enters seemingly transcendental states. (And, despite all this heavy-duty, all-in artistry, he maintains a sense of humor—see the YouTube video Arrington de Dionyso's Guide to Advanced Sexual Techniques.) A rabid collaborator, this evening Dionyso will by joined by a drummer and soprano saxophonist. "I'm singing in sound-poetry mode with bass clarinet, invented instruments, and Indonesian flutes," says Dionyso, adding: "I've been doing a lot more dancing too." ANDREW R TONRY
