Byron Westbrook: Body Consonance LP Release
Fri. Oct. 13, 7:00-9:00pm

To praise Byron Westbrook’s Body Consonance release – a sonic suggestion of interactive forms – on French label Hands in the Dark, we invite the artist to perform at Commend.
Body Consonance is the follow up to Precipice, Byron Westbrook’s critically acclaimed debut LP from 2015 on Root Strata. Taking a turn towards greater immediacy, this new album is far from “ambient” with ecstatic abstract rhythms as its anchor. An artist who also operates in visual contexts, Westbrook utilizes binaural qualities of the stereo listening format to sculpt three-dimensional sounds in perpetual motion, producing works that are both pointillistic and psychedelic. Body Consonance is a meditation on physicality, a virtuosic choreography of sonic textures, colors and shapes woven together; Bodies in motion, conversing, orbiting, colliding.
