Nathan Kairis is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Asheville, NC. He crafts pieces of music made to bounce off all the nearest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains, like shouting at those surrounding monoliths and listening to the evolution of your own echoes. Each of Nathan’s compositions are reflective, expansive, and imaginative in a different manner than the last. The excitement at the first tremble of thunder, the loneliness of a tundra stretching forever before you, the gentle joy of life with loved ones, and the dynamic interplay between all of these feelings. That is the music of Nathan Kairis.
Acherontia. The Death’s Head Hawkmoth. This album is about disconnection, reconnection, and fluttering between the two. The vibrations between these two emotions can be violent and visceral, or almost calming in their agitation. Here is where we find the shuffling trudge of “Solipsism”, straining pressure of “Surface Tension”, and the breakthrough of the title track. Acherontia is a sonic exploration of what happens in between, a transitory stage that most of us just want to get through.
