about

A cinematic energy runs throughout the length of Nightside—from the arpeggiated opening notes of “Oracle” and its retro-futuro optimism, onward to the synths-and-strings sci-fi baroque pop of “Defenestration” and through to the cloak-and-dagger comedic thriller melodrama finish of “Karen Black’s Blonde Wig.” Cissell performs each of the ten original songs of Nightside in its entirety, dipping into space pop and synthwave territory along the way and bringing his distinctive composer-improviser sensibility to the production.

Luke Cissell New York, New York

"Luke Cissell has carved out a unique space for his art. While his compositions (and performances) bring to mind the bold, idiosyncratic feel of the Kronos Quartet or John Zorn, he seems irresistibly drawn to worlds miles outside of traditional – and non-traditional – classical and jazz music."
—Chris Ingalls, PopMatters
