Something strange starts to happen when you’re experiencing music of such extremes so close together. You start to question how different they really are. This is not to say people are going to start dancing en masse to a drone set, or sipping whisky to lightspeed kuduro bangers. Rather, it highlights something more nuanced in Semibreve’s curation than just sticking together a hodgepodge of genres and touring acts. These disparate sounds made by artists from diverse backgrounds feels conversational. So many of the performances explode the ways we can experience the moment. Suggesting the seconds can be filled with something other than algorithmically determined distractions.
