Daedelus Captures Lightning in a Bottle

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 - 09:55 AM

This Memorial Day weekend kicks off the Lightning in A Bottle festival in Irvine, California.   The four-day event bills itself as 'equal parts music, art and green workshops' — and the name isn't a bad description for the music of one of its headliners.

The musician and producer Daedelus, a kind of Thinking Man’s DJ who dresses up as a Victorian dandy, will perform music from his latest EP Righteous Fists of Harmony this Sunday 5/30 at 9:30pm.

Last week on Studio 360, Daedelus explained his unique sonic vision — a mixture of lush orchestral samples, funky breakbeats, and found sound— that, in essence, attempts to capture lightning in a bottle; what he calls music’s “Eureka! Moment.”

Not surprisingly, Daedelus' visual style is just as arresting as his sound.
