I have a love/hate relationship with Dustin Wong that I’m hoping to turn into a love/love relationship in 2012. Wong is one of the most talented guitarists I’ve seen play, and his musical compilations are brilliantly innovative. I just want a bit more showmanship.
2012 seems to be the year for a more fan and media-savvy Wong. First, there’s a new album Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads coming February 21. Then there’s a new video, “Diagonally Talking Echoes" which combines his experimental sound with inkblots and floating heads.
Finally, there is the Say You Dream, Create A Sound project which enables Wong to connect directly with your subconscious. Send him the description of an amazing dream you had, and he’ll create an original piece of music for it and record it to his soundcloud page.
Im so excited about this new project and getting to connect more with this amazing artist.
Dustin is playing at 285 Kent on Jan. 21 and at Glasslands on Feb. 3.
Check out all his good stuff!
