Stars of the Lid plus Paul Taylor

Sage Two

Since forming in 1993, Stars of the Lid (one of the most apropos names in all of music) have scratched out quite a niche for themselves as one of the most influential drone/ambient music projects on Earth.

News: The legendary drone duo announce their largest tour in nearly a decade.

This fall, SOTL’s Adam Wiltzie & Brian McBride will be hitting the road to debut some new compositions, and some old classics with long time visual collaborator and projectionist Luke Savisky, and German lighting designer MFO.

On stage this tour will be featuring a new band. 2 new members, Bobby Donne from Kranky label mates Labradford, and Adam’s long time studio collaborator Francesco Donadello. Plus Brussels residents & A Winged Victory for the Sullen’s string ensemble, the Echo Collective & a vintage Moog 55 Modular Synthesizer.

SOTL was selected by independent event producer & Blast First Records founder, Paul Smith who formed a new partnership with Moog Music Inc to put on a series of concerts with some vintage Moog instruments, in the spirit of the Moog Concordance that was put on in 2015 @ the Barbican in London with the late Keith Emerson, celebrating over 50 years since Dr Robert Moog introduced the world to the Moog modular synthesizer.
