Haewa to play at Monopole
PLATTSBURGH — Haewa to perform at Monopole, 17 Protection Ave, on Sept. 27 at 10 p.m.
Haewa was formed in late 2011 in Rochester. From deep pychedelia to funk and more, they create pulsating grooves which are complimented by textural blankets of ambience. These energetic improvisations lead audience members in and out of songs, both instrumental and lyrical.
The tone to the music is entirely organic, focusing on the music from the guitar, bass and drum set, with small touches of subtle electronics (synthesizer, pedals and drum pad) to help deepen the collective array of sounds between the three members.
With these tools, Ben Chilbert, Collin Jones and Riley Dichairo successfully transport the listener to a brand new sonic dimension.
