J.R. Bohannon, Gabriel Birnbaum

When: Sat., June 4, 9 p.m. 2016

Both as Ancient Oceans and under his own abbreviated name, Brooklyn’s J.R. Bohannon seems to illustrate the shapes and sights of American landscapes by bending some of its usual musical forms. His work for solo acoustic guitar tucks busy tufts of notes into small spaces, then lets them unfurl in beautifully riverine motion. You want to take shelter in Bohannon’s meditative pieces, to regard them with the solace of a still life. As Ancient Oceans, he amplifies that feeling with elliptical improvisations around rustic themes, as if cutting bleary-eyed dubplates from some forgotten cosmic country classic. —Grayson Haver Currin
