New York

Greg Davis &Ben Vida


Greg Davis, the Vermont-based scholar of cosmic jams, makes a final pass through New York before impending fatherhood keeps him off the road for awhile. Joined by longtime collaborator Ben Vida, lately of Soft Circle and the Bird Show Band, the pair dive full-on into vintage synth improvisation, facing off Battleship-style in a set-up that resembles an actual battleship, peering intently through a mess of constantly reorganized wires to a shifting hydra of sound that, like much of Davis’s music, is both the portal and the place beyond.
