Dan Deacon marches to the beat of his own … audience. With a reputation for bizarre and experimental electronic music, his live shows step outside the box — and often off the stage. Performing at floor level, Deacon — taking a quick break from touring with Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips — has been known to pass around instructions for required crowd participation, ranging from games of musical chairs to cellphone song serenades. Of his 2015 album Gliss Riffer, Pitchfork asks, “Is this rave music for the DIY-house-show set? Avant-garde electronica? Performance art? Minimalism? Maximalism?” All we know is, it’s fun.
