(Alarm, Gigante Sound, meakusma - USA)
Lord Tang is a warm descent into a dub fueled frenzy of color and light. Dancing inside the vividly colorful abstract narratives created by artist Kelly Porter, Lord Tang, in white tuxedo with white painted face, creates a moving canvas that mirrors the kaleidoscopic surrealism of his sound. It is a sound dredged from the depths of Jamaican dub and spun into a new form that incorporates the many influences on Lord Tang’s creator, Dominic Cramp: soundtracks, vintage science fiction, British dark comedy, dirty electronics, modular electronic music, abstract tone clouds. It is a sound and sight that fills a room and transforms it into a ship set sailing into parts unknown.
Dominic Cramp has taken Lord Tang to several venues on the West Coast of the United States and all over Europe. He is an active member of Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista and currently involved in the Talking Book , an abstract instrumental project with Jared Blum and Bill Gould from Faith No More, that more recently has taken him down to Chile, Brazil and Argentina.
