about

Recorded live at AURA Music & Arts Festival, February 2013.

Michael Garfield defies expectations, remixing the familiar conventions of acoustic music with a fifty-pound pedalboard of beat slicers, filters, delays, and multi-channel loopers, welding fingerstyle technique into a cybernetic bed of live hardware production.

Picking (or often bowing, with an electromagnet) while twisting knobs and DJ'ing live samples with his toes, Michael's performances embody his other life as an evolutionary theorist and futurist – liberating the organic into the digital, and the idioms of Americana into a new species of transcendental trance.

"Transformational Festivals are a symptom of dissociation":
