Back when electronic music was a new thing, one of the things people complained about was that they thought it didn’t have any soul. “Aren’t we removing all the human elements, all the emotion, all the sensuality from music by taking away the instruments?” they asked.

This year at Together Boston he’ll be playing the Brighton Music Hall, a venue intimate enough to let you feel like you’re very much a part of the sonic landscapes he creates.
