With the shocking news of his passing last week, tributes to the life and music of Austin Peralta have started to pour in. This one in particular comes courtesy of Alpha Pup, a live recording of a 2011 performance from the release party of Peralta’s solo LP, Endless Planets. The performance features a stacked lineup of musicians at the side of Peralta’s piano, including Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on viola, Sam Gendel on saxaphone, Ryan McGillicuddy on bass, Zach Harmon on drums, Earnest Blount on electronics and Benjamin Olsen taking care of visuals.
The performance is over an hour long, showcasing the magnificent talent this young man possessed. February 11, 2011 was the date this took place, at Future, the Center for Arts at Eagle Rock in Los Angeles, California. Oh, and yes, that introduction came from Flying Lotus, as this was indeed a Brainfeeder release. Listen to the performance below.
