Aberdeen is a new experimental song cycle from the creative force behind the intricate pop band Lost Lander. In 2008, Matt Sheehy, a forester in addition to a songwriter, took a job in Kurt Cobain’s hometown. Living in a run-down, remote cabin, he soon became entangled with an eccentric local couple. Those experiences are now a one-man, musical storytelling performance that Sheehy describes “as a rock concert, meets The Moth, meets The Twilight Zone.” Told through song and spoken word, these solo black box shows featuring live-action and animated projections by Stefan Nadelman will be preceded by several mixed media storytellers. And later this fall, you can expect a studio record of new material under the same name.
