furniture Daniel will be performing at ADA Gallery December First Friday

furniture Daniel is the solo electronic project of David Dominique. Performing on analog synthesizers, voice and loop pedal, Dominique creates colorful patchworks of looped polyphonic vocal harmonies, chants, utterances and evolving timbres. Rich, abstract soundscapes intersperse with winding multi-layered songs, exploring grief, mania, hallucination and catharsis.

Dominique is a composer, performer and music theorist living in Richmond, by way of LA, Boston and New York, and he was recently appointed Assistant Professor of Music Composition and Theory at the College of William & Mary.

Much of Dominique’s recent music has been written for an extended jazz octet, including the forthcoming Mask (November, 2018, Orenda Records), and the widely-praised album, Ritual, described by Downbeat Magazine as a "rowdy muscular brand of modernism. Picture Charles Mingus taking over the Sun Ra Arkestra.” Both albums mix elements of contemporary experimental music, minimalism, rock and ‘60s big band jazz. In support of Mask, Dominique toured this November on the east coast including New York, DC, Baltimore, Richmond, Philadelphia and others. // @davedominique // #richmondva #adagallery #daviddominique #firstfridays #rva #furnituredaniel
