Saturday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—Julian Loida’s show at Brandon Music promises to be a unique sound experience comprised of all original music on vibraphone, written and performed by Loida himself.
Loida first revealed his high skill level as a percussionist when performing at Brandon Music as drummer with the Burlington based band Ameranouche. Loida said his music gives voice to all “wallflowers,” which is also the title of his debut album, released in September 2019. He asks his listeners to explore the introvert in each of us through his music.
“‘Wallflower’ and the music I compose is closer to a musical painting in which I assemble sound to evoke the colors in my mind,” he said.
Loida’s music is beautifully haunting, immersive and calming whilst taking the listener on a musical pathway of exploration and discovery. Loida’s musical curiosity and open-mindedness set him apart and have propelled him towards a wide range of sounds, genres, and artistic endeavors. He’s performed jazz, folk, and classical, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, songwriters/composers, and musicians of all stripes. The thirst to participate in and experience this range of sounds is partly a product of Loida’s synesthesia.
In 2017, he received his master’s degree in classical percussion from New England Conservatory. As an educator, Loida shares his scores and deep rhythmic knowledge with students of all ages.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Rd. in Brandon. For more information visit brandon-music.net.
