Michael Garfield - Fatima / The Apparition (live at the DMT RMX party)

from by Evolver Social Movement



Not content to merely push the boundaries of acoustic fingerstyle technique, Michael weaves guitar, voice, audience, and venue into a greater instrument ecstatically playing itself. These guitar tapping etudes, cyberacoustic looping groovescapes, and heart-spearing love songs pull listeners through a remix of musical idioms past, present, and future - intimate and ecstatic, focused and raw.

Between the living warmth of acoustic tradition and the whirling electronics of festival culture, Michael recently joined the roster at Re:Evolution Media (Alex & Allyson Grey, Govinda, Kaminanda, The Nadis Warriors) and has gigged with an eclectic array of artists – including Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Zuvuya (with Michael Travis of SCI), Papadosio, Zach Deputy, That 1 Guy, Jamie Janover, Willy Porter, Andreas Kapsalis Trio, Lunar Fire, Random Rab, Sidecar Tommy of Beats Antique, Heyoka, Ana Sia, D.V.S*, & Cecil "P'Nut" Daniels...and garnered invitations to jam with both legendary instrumentalists (Fareed Haque of Garaj Mahal & Ray White of Frank Zappa) and cutting-edge producers (Entheogenic, Bowie, & K@Dog).


"A transcendent exploration of what one man can achieve with an acoustic guitar...the glitched-out grooves [are] simultaneously calm yet very much switched-on."
- Everyday Guitar Gear

"It takes creativity to make the next step in a newer, more shocking direction, but it takes a visionary to go beyond the breaking point and meet music on the other end of the spectrum. That’s what Michael Garfield does..."
- The Untz

"Fatima / The Apparition" improvised on solo acoustic guitar and hardware effects at CODEX: The DMT RMX Party, 2012.03.09.
