Flying Spiders live at the intersection of galaxies: hip hop lyrics about the transformation of fear and a thirst for social change, merging with the layers and textures of live instrumentalists from different musical and metaphysical practices.
The band debuted on 10/10/10 with eight people and has since welcomed a revolving door of collaborators, behind lead MC Isamu “Darkside Som” Jordan.
The Spiders collective brings electrifying plate tectonics of genres, such as jazz from saxophone and trombone, the rock sound of drums and electric guitar, the classical of acoustic piano, folk and orchestral ambience of violin and cello; and the wide range of vocal textures from vocalists, beatboxer, and improvisational rapper.
Since conception, the band has been experiencing a constant polymorphic evolution. The lineup varies based on which of the Spiders are available on any given night, although there is a quorum for stage and rehearsal. FS is synesthetic and in the present tense, a band that is constantly interpreting and reinterpreting its own songs in different configurations as well as creating the new and spontaneous. Flying Spiders is all-ages-friendly.
