community of light & mount analogue live

saturday, december 14th, 2013

a night of experimental, psych, drone, kosmische music with live visuals

community of light :  matthew swiezynski, michael malinski and chi yun
mount analogue : chi yun and matthew swiezynski

community of light is a collective of artists & musicians working in the post kraut cosmic drone continuum which was initiated by mr. robert fludd and has come to full fruition in the twenty-first century in various forms.  specifically; as pursuers of the Light, which is often called Darkness, and a sound we call silence (with a method called night vision).

one critic of note has said of the community : "community of light reconceives a music that has for a long time been gathered from the invisible and most ancient of all communities, which has been in existence since the creation of the Cosmos, and will be with us through the end of time.  their music is highly influenced by krautrock, psychedelic, ambient, british folk, electronic and experimental and avant garde music."
