Dance Music is the sophomore album from The Living Earth Show, a Bay Area new music initiative comprised of electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson. The Living Earth Show works to serve as a megaphone and canvas for some of the world’s most progressive artists; the duo commissions, curates, organizes, and promotes composers to help them realize their most ambitious creative visions. On Dance Music, the duo brings to life works inspired by dance by Christopher Cerrone, Jacob Cooper, Nicole Lizée, Jonathan Pfeffer, and Anna Meredith.
As the title points out, Dance Music is steeped in The Living Earth Show’s deep-seated roots in dance, and their dedication to creating musical experiences that engage both their collaborators and their audience. The project is the culmination of three years the duo spent working with their most trusted collaborators: Robert Dekkers of San Francisco experimental ballet group Post:Ballet; longtime engineers Ryan Kleeman and Jesse Nichols; and a team of today’s most innovative composers whose music dialogues with dance and movement.
