Isaac Sherman is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser living in LA. His music employs a myriad of synthesizers, samplers, guitar and vocals to achieve a euphoric, contemplative state for himself and the listener. Through improvisation, live-looping and processing, his music ranges from typical, shorter song structures to drawn out, long-form meditative pieces that often change from performance to performance. He cannot seem to escape the pentatonic scale and is currently trying to figure out what that means.
