ATL Concert Roundup — August 4-10

Faun and a Pan Flute

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Faun and a Plan Flute (Record Release Show)
w/ Magicicada, Danielle Brutto
Friday, August 8
The Goat Farm – 1200 Foster Street in Atlanta 30318
Admission $7 or $15 (includes a copy of the Faun and a Pan Flute vinyl)

I wouldn’t go as far to say that Faun and a Pan Flute are better live than they are on record, but there is something uniquely entertaining about watching the group’s nine members come together to try and wrestle down one of their sprawling, orchestral-like compositions. The band has recently returned from an East Coast tour with fellow sound explorer and Mission Trips label head Magicicada, and will finally get an opportunity to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut with a headlining performance at the Goat Farm. In addition to the group’s nebulous blend of styles—everything from psychedelic pop to prog rock to classical is represented on the record—the band will perform with local artist Danielle Brutto, who will be live painting using an 8×8 cube as his canvas. From the Facebook event page:

The collaboration between Brutto and Faun and a Pan Flute challenges the traditional music concert experience while simultaneously drawing parallels between visual and auditory processes.

For this program, an 8×8 cube will be constructed out of window panels and placed in the middle of the room with Brutto painting transparency into an opaque art container alongside musicians and projected images of the artist and music working together in real time.

Patrons will be encouraged to walk between music and art, the invitation provoking a more intimate interaction between the tension and energy inherent in improvisational collaborations.
