Faun and a Pan Flute is a collectively-led experimental nonet from Atlanta, GA. In playing highly original, highly collaborative compositions, the group summons and explores music that juxtaposes controlled rhythmic complexity and harsh texture with lush harmonic beauty and expressive melodies. Faun presents music deeply structured yet breathing with space and freedom, exhibiting their engaged and unique method of composition, undertaken with labor and devotion. Such an outlet succeeds in capturing and expressing the focused, sprawling, restless musical energy of its nine members.
Faun and a Pan Flute has had the privilege of sharing stages with such myriad acts as: Kamasi Washington, Lonnie Holley, Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Greg Fox (Zs), Battle Trance, Kebbi Williams, Lightning Bolt, Guerilla Toss, Horse Lords, Snarky Puppy, Sam Prekop (The Sea and Cake), Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), Little Tybee, and Adron.
