Nick Carswell is the main creative force behind Carswell & Hope, but he has also quietly been working on some new solo material that has just been released. The Wave (A Reckoning) is from a new project that drifts into the acoustic-electronica, with looping, sequencing and a custom-made multimedia performance to go with it.
Debuting in May 2019 with performances in Kansas City and Lawrence, Kansas, Changing Shades featured electronic elements, live looping, lighting and projection creating a visual accompaniment to new music that explores themes of migration, identity and belonging. Changing Shades was supported by an Inspiration Grant from ArtsKC.
More music to follow soon, but for now enjoy the debut track The Wave (A Reckoning) as a pay what you want download and some images from the recent performance:
