Sontag Shogun
Sontag Shogun
Sontag Shogun (Brooklyn, New York) is a collaborative trio that makes use of analog sound treatments and nostalgic solo piano compositions in harmony to depict abstract places in our memory. Textures built from organic materials such as sand, slate, boiling water, brush and dried leaves, both produced live in performance and recorded to weathered 1/4" tape warm up the space between lush piano themes. All of which is abstracted coolly in the reflective digital space of treated vocals and a live-processed feed from the piano. Bringing us back, like a faded passing scent or any natural emotive trigger, but to where? The wordless journey there will inevitably be more revealing than the destination itself.

Sontag Shogun has improvised with artists as diverse as Matana Roberts, Tom Carter, Aki Onda and Julia Kent as well as poets, choreographers, filmmakers, a collective of Japanese contemporary video artists and scentscape installation artists. They have shared the stage with notable artists such as Todd Reynolds, R. Luke DuBois, Edwin Van Der Heide, Alexander Turnquist, Chris Forsyth, Ben Vida & Koen Holtkamp, Sam Shalabi, Noveller among many others.
