An Evening with Allelujah
November 13, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree and open to the public
Join us at 21c Museum Hotel Durham for a special performance by Allelujah, accompanied by the film work of Andy Byers and a performance by Heartscape Landbreak. Allelujah will perform their forthcoming album, The Death and Life of Capt Nathan Baker – out 11.04.16 via Cosmic Dreamer Music. In the new album, members of Minus Story and Shearwater blend poetry and gospel anthems to tell the spiritual journey of a civil war captain. Andy Byers, a Los Angeles-based Director, Production Designer and Costume Designer, will present a screening of his new film, Eclipse.
Following a few albums with the experimental noise pop band Minus Story and several years of touring, Andy Byers relocated to New York where he worked in film as a production designer and composer for a number of projects, including being a critical part of Isabella Rossellini’s series Green Porno. After that, Andy moved to LA, where he rediscovered his passion for songwriting. He started to trade ideas with Shearwater’s Lucas Oswald, and during a week long writing session in Los Angeles the two of them had outlined the basic concept for Allelujah’s The Death and Life of Capt Nathan Baker.
