Dan Samsa - CONTOURS - Live Album Launch Show
“This album is about change, change being the only inevitability in life, right now this has only become more relevant and symbolic than ever.”
Released on Apollo later this year, Dan Samsa's debut album 'Contours' explores 360° sonic atmospheres, created within awe inspiring environments including Southwark Cathedral, Greenwich foot tunnel and Deptford market. Capturing the rich acoustic ambiences and environmental sounds, these sonic textures have been merged with brass sextet, drums, analogue basslines, vocals with a virtuosic performance on the piano and synths from Dan, creating an immersive and engulfing audio experience. This is a collaborative effort that combines Jazz, Drum and Bass, Techno, experimental classical and touches of folk, creating a unique rich sound that could only happen now but also has its foundations deeply rooted in South London.
For this first full performance Dan has brought together some of London's finest Jazz and Classical musicians. The Lexington is known for having the best sound of any smaller London venue, but Dan will be taking this a step further by adding a surround sound setup, immersing the audience within the spectacular sonic atmospheres from the album.
