Terraformation (Tucson, AZ / Austin, TX)
4:00 pm Sunday 7/16/17
Benjamin DeGain (drums/vibraphone) + Mohadev (guitar/bass)
Birthed and brought up in the American Southwest, the prog/post-rock quartet Terraformation plays instrumental music inspired by desert landscapes and deep space. Multi-instrumentalist Benjamin DeGain and guitarist/bassist Mohadev formed the band in Tucson, Arizona in 2008 as a recording project (they recorded the first Terraformation album, Darkness Among Stars, in a single month), an arrangement that continued after Mohadev relocated to Austin in 2009. Over the course of three subsequent releases, Terraformation has developed a discography that takes in shimmering, vibraphone-lead pastorals and robust art-rock with equal dexterity.
In the second installment of Terraformation’s long awaited reunion at NMASS, this duo set marries live improvisation with DeGain’s and Mohadev’s long experience with remote collaboration.
