Cloudcloud is musical collective led by Michael Durek. They make experimental and ambient soundscapes. For each performance, they offer something fresh and new. The performances are often site-specific, making use of sampled on-site sounds, responding to the environment musically, or when possible using the space itself to make a new instrument. The soundscapes may contain drone notes, different tunings, and looping elements that are reminiscent of La Monte Young or Philip Glass. These hypnotic textural elements are at-times infused with chaos and a touch of humor in the vein of John Zorn. Cloudcloud makes use of vintage keyboards, theremin, upright bass, electronic elements, guitars and an assortment of other percussive and melodic instruments.
