"Welcome to the future...Michael is a pioneer exploring the edge realms where the electric and old world meet."
Between the personal warmth of songwriting tradition and the whirling ecstatics of festival culture, Michael Garfield is making music for which new words must be invented – vocally athletic percussive future-folk and improvised instrumental electronica, a marriage of charismatic stage presence and dazzling avant-garde technique that combines polyphonic fretboard tapping with a fifty-pound pedalboard of filters, delays, and multi-channel loopers.
Singing and playing while twisting knobs and DJ'ing live samples with his toes, Michael's performances are an embodiment of his training as an evolutionary biologist and cyberdelic poet-philosopher – liberating the organic into the digital, and the idioms of Americana into a new species of transcendental trance.
