Ryan Lott, who performs as Son Lux, writes intimate, personal songs that explode with epic production and interesting orchestration. Lott will perform at the ICA in support of his third and most recent album, Lanterns, released on Joyful Noise Recordings. Meditative and heaving with energy, the album weaves disparate elements into a singular vision of a world both strange and welcoming.
Lott has built an impressive list of collaborators including everyone from indie-rock darlings such as Sufjan Stevens, Peter Silberman (The Antlers), These New Puritans, and My Brightest Diamond; to composers and classical-world institutions such as Nico Muhly, Richard Perry (Arcade Fire), Judd Greenstein, yMusic, ETHEL, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw; to rappers Serengeti, Busdriver and Beans (Antipop Consortium).
Recently Son Lux has performed at Carnegie Hall with the Young People’s Choir of New York, held a weeklong residency at the Joyce Theater with Stephen Petronio Dance Company, performed with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and shared the stage with Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Kate Davis, and Dose One. He will be collaborating this summer with Serengeti and Sufjan Stevens and visual artist Jim Hodges for a musical accompaniment to a traveling retrospective of Hodges work debuting at the Walker Museum of Art in February 2014 and opening at the ICA in July.
Leverage Models will open for Son Lux on March 21.
The 2013–14 performance season at the ICA is presented with support from The Robert E. Davoli and Eileen L. McDonagh Charitable Foundation and Ellen Poss.
