Pianist and filmmaker James Carson has spent nearly two decades developing a new form of music. A childhood prodigy born with perfect pitch, Carson abandoned a rapidly-ascending career in order to travel the world, and then spend five years designing, building and practicing in a remote cabin in Northern Canada. Drawing from his isolated time in that cabin, Carson now creates a wholly new music with each performance, by removing his own intentions and instead receiving and channeling all forces and energies that are present, both within and beyond the performance space, resulting in spiritual concert experiences hailed as “meditative” (Time Out New York), “trance-inducing” (Feast of Music), and “delicate music surrounded by the aura of silence” (Boston Phoenix). Here, Carson celebrates the release of his debut album The Story of Birds by exploring the transformative, transcendent space that is the Crypt.
