“Prolific” is the operative word when describing the trajectory of local musician John Kiran Fernandes’ career. From his time with legendary Elephant 6 ensembles Olivia Tremor Control and Circulatory System to his ambient solo projects, numerous one-off projects, collaborations and bands, Fernandes has simply not stopped. He also releases recordings under his label, Cloud Recordings. This year’s Cloud Recordings Festival is showcasing some of the most compelling musical acts available in town. Kicking off the first night is the fuzzed-out pop music of Telemarket, followed by a set of improvised music by Fernandes and avant-garde guitarist Shane Parish. Next comes the psych-folk meanderings of The Rishis. Rounding off the first night is John’s son, Kiran, and his fingerpicked folk music. Night two starts strong with the ambient electronica of Marcel Sletten, followed by the lush ambient music of In A Kythe (Lydian Brambila). Shane Parish will play a solo set, followed by the electronic space disco of Organically Programmed.
