Melting Season

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Heralding from the Dallas, Texas that spaghetti westerns are made of, Melting Season is a multi-layered head-trip. A drummer from a young age and a practically-everything-else-ist from only slightly after that, Bruce Blay first came to prominence with the band Sleep Whale. His contributions on guitar, bass, violin, percussion and field recordings gave their music a sound that was described as a beautiful, somber patchwork and compared to The Books and Stars Of The Lid. Working on his own for the first time and expanding his arsenal to include kalimba, harp, noise makers, and most importantly saturated multi-tracked vocals, Melting Season was born. The layered approach to building sounds is borne of a diverse resume of experiences. Whether gaining his philosophy degree, cliff-jumping, wandering around Europe, recording bird sounds in Chile, working for the Crow Collection of Asian Art, or finding inspiration in weeping philosophers, comic books, and cats, this mad scientist of sound and emotion is an exploding musical alloy.
