You may have seen the posters around town: “This Day Will Never Happen Again,” they say. But this is no doomsday proclamation. Instead, Saturday, May 26 is the coming of the Inner Music concert series featuring two local artists, dep and The Night Lights.
The series, held at 41 Carolina Lane in downtown Asheville, “celebrates life through music featuring ambient, space music, new age, world music, and healing sound.” Both dep and The Night Lights fall more into the ambient category.
dep is producer/composer Danny Peck who uses an array of electronic toys and gadgets to create “atmospheric soundscapes, often juxtaposed with haunting, gentle piano melodies interlaced with intricate, delicate rhythms,” according to a bio. “dep’s sound has been described as something between Sigur Ros, The Album Leaf, Aphex Twin, and Exposions in the Sky.”
The Night Lights is Peck’s electronica/indie project with Kie Cochran and Danny Peck. The dup crafts “melodic, electronically rooted songs that can range from beat-driven, epic electronic ballads to more ambient, reflective, and atmospheric sounds. Their music is generally a combination of Danny’s sequenced beats, keys, vocals, and manipulations of other analog gadgetry, in equal parts with Kie’s sweeping fx-driven guitar and electric bass. The two utilize an array of effect and delay pedals to produce a large, multi-textured sound.”
sep and The Night Lights perform at 7:30 p.m. Donation is on a sliding scale from $5 to $15.
