In a rare solo performance, Dani Tull will use vintage Organs and Synthesizers, Guitars, modern technologies and hand-made instruments, to create exotic ambient, polyphonic sound works that intertwine pre-recorded and improvised live musical performance. The set up and approach will be informal, analogous to a casual home-studio session.
Artist and musician Dani Tull has had solo exhibitions locally at Blum and Poe, Kim Light Gallery and Angstrom Gallery. As a musician he has collaborated and worked with a multitude of musicians including Marnie Weber, Eric Avery, Tom Watson, Raymond Pettibon, Brad Laner, Jad Fair, and Jim Shaw. Tull has also played in many bands including Polarbear, The Spirit Girls, Mythter and BoyGeorgeMichaelJacksonBrown. Recently he has composed original scores for 2 films by Jim Shaw. Dani Tull and Jim Shaw have also collaborated on an epic performance for the Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum, Blast 6, and an upcoming performance in Turin Italy.
