Dylan Lloyd –
“Klezmatron: a Klezmer Electroacoustic Journey:” Music
This set of klezmer-derived electroacoustic music has been reimagined to take the listener on an epic voyage that evokes a future where klezmer music makes its way out into the universe. Using pedal effects, alternative instrument sounds, and a looping pedal, Dylan will create a cosmic landscape that is both recognizably klezmer and wholly unique.
What happens when a classical musician takes aim at combining electronics with klezmer music? You get an intergalactic ax-wielding clarinet and electronic wind warrior Dylan Lloyd. Like Clark Kent, he leads a dual identity as an active orchestral musician, but his alter ego embraces his true darker passions, combining his classical music physicality with the lush soundscape of retro game soundtracks and the folklore musical language of klezmer. Dylan uses every musical weapon at his disposal to create and transform klezmer music into a space wonderland. What started as a simple academic pursuit reconnecting with his heritage has pushed Dylan’s artistic energies to create a klezmer genre that is uniquely his, evoking a sense of nostalgia and dance combined with a modern/futuristic aesthetic.
