CINCINNATI -- More than just another band, Cincinnati’s own A Delicate Motor is a music composition and performance project like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Launched by Adam Petersen, the group utilizes keyboard, vocals, and unique percussion loops to create ambient sounds that the give same improvised, untethered vibe of good jazz music, with the energy and newness of electro-pop.
A Delicate Motor’s latest, "Fellover My Own," releases later this month, and will feature no shortage of sonic imagery.
“This work posits to express the experience — trifling, humbling and humoring — of the conundrum of human effort,” said frontman Petersen. “By endeavoring to cultivate higher self, or spiritual awareness, or better person, we paradoxically inhibit ourselves within our very striving.”
Listen to A Delicate Motor's live performance for Lounge Acts in the audio play above. Their album release event will be June 29 at Northside Tavern, so if you like what you hear, mark your calendars now.
