The following description comes from the event organizer.

Holy Volcano presents A night of transportive neoclassical soundscapes by two visionary composers with Gregory Allison & Slow Meadow. They will each be performing with a string trio on this spring tour. 

Slow Meadow is Houston multi-instrumentalist Matt Kidd. Kidd's releases as Slow Meadow have been celebrated by the New York Observer, NPR's Stephen Thompson, Echoes' John Diliberto, and 6LACK who sampled “Lachrymosia” for the platinum-selling song on his debut album, FREE 6LACK. With a foundation of piano, string orchestration, and an ever-evolving electronic palette, Slow Meadow traverses the borders of neoclassical and minimalist electronic.

His newest album effort, Upstream Dream, delivers a deeply personal and transportive experience that speaks directly to the ebbs and flows and mundanity and marvels of life. With sublime patience, understated elegance, and surreal atmosphere, Slow Meadow savors the present, remembers the past, and imagines what could be.

In 2022, Kidd provided the original soundtrack to the Selena Gomez documentary Apple TV film, "My Mind & Me."

Gregory Allison creates with a single violin a sound that travels across great landscapes. He has toured the world with violin in hand and is endlessly inspired by the instrument’s journey around the globe, especially its use in South Indian Classical music. His live performance blends the Indian Classical melodic improvisation with his classical sensibility as a film composer, offering the listener a sonic journey through time and space. 

He will be performing his 2021 debut album Portal in its entirety, along with new compositions for amplified violin and string quartet. 

Gregory recently relocated to Portland, OR  after 5 years living in LA, where he started the record label and recording studio Holy Volcano. He has released four albums on the label: one solo (Portal), two with collaborator Tristan de Liege (A Light For Dark Moments & Life As A Film), and as producer for the debut album from songwriter Ella Luna, Anything To Make It Loud. 

He is currently collaborating with electronic composers to create ReWorked versions of the music from his debut solo record Portal. The first two pieces on the ReWorked album, “Portal” and “Veritas” were reworked by Kalaido and Tristan de Liege will be released on Holy Volcano on March 8 and March 29, respectively.

In 2023, Allison traveled to Kerala, India to work with his South Indian Classical teacher of 10 years, Peroor Jayaprakash. The violin duo performed in Hindu temples with the classical Carnatic ensemble, and recorded a set of nine classical pieces with a new fusion ensemble for the largest media company in Kerala, The Manorama.
