Rich, dense, and dancy, Dan Deacon’s community centered art brings people together with ecstatic electopop composition and over the top live performances, with a flare for antics and fun.
Baltimore artist Dan Deacon’s art is centered on community and bringing people together. Fusing together the growing intensity of his live performances with his background in electro-acoustic composition, Deacon’s most recent album, Bromst, embodies the same energy and excitement as his earlier work but expands both in scope and palette. The instrumentation on Bromst is a mixture of acoustic instruments, mechanical instruments, samples and electronics, featuring player piano, marimba, glockenspiel, vibraphone, live drums, winds and brass. Deacon’s intricately complex music is woven together into what has become his signature sound: rich, dense, noisy dance pop.
