Hillside Summer Festival 2018
July 13 - 15
Mappe Of's 'A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone' is an ethereal avant-folk tour de force that belongs to no time or place. Or perhaps not even of this Earth, judging by the range of haunting vocal textures or some of the interstellar synths that intertwine with trumpets, violins, kalimba, autoharp, and Mappe Of’s own intricate guitar playing. There is no traditional drum kit. No finite template of instrumentation. 'A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone' is a sonic world unto itself, an aural landscape steeped in experience and imagination.
Mappe Of's Tom Meikle will be performing an intimate, electronically-tinged set with two other musicians (Rowan Grice and Jason Brum), putting songwriting, looping and textures at the forefront in a meditative and spacious interpretation of the music of 'A Northern Star, A Perfect Stone'.
