Cloudburst and Medicine Cabinet


Revival Drum Shop (map) Southeast
Wed., Feb. 6, 8 p.m. 2013 All Ages


Cloudburst is only one of Tim Westcott's alter egos, but when a guy has been building sound universes for going on 20 years, he probably has room for any number of electronic doppelgangers. Westcott's best compositions tend to be long, minimalist, and ambient. Longform works give Westcott the time he needs to weave together found sounds with the subtle intricacies of his own creativity. The result is intentional and thick, a fully realized atmosphere to soundtrack the alien film playing in your brain. Westcott isn't adverse to the occasional melody or dance beat, but it's sparse and judicious. A year ago, guitarist Dan Duval and reed player Lee Elderton formed Medicine Cabinet after playing together in a bunch of local jazz ensembles. Flux is at the heart of jazz, and these guys have taken this to heart, specializing in whatever contemporary avant-garde chamber music is supposed to be. REBECCA WILSON
