Nerissa Campbell’s ‘After The Magic‘ is a moody dreamscape featuring Balinese gamelan, a jazz trio, pensive solo piano pieces, and fleeting guitars woven together with melancholy vocals.
Using Balinese gong cycles and modes, lyrical stories, and improvisation and jazz harmonies that combined create a sense of space and breath, Campbell’s songs ebb and flow; inform and are informed by each other.
Joining Campbell to release ‘After The Magic’ are NY’s premier Balinese Gamelan Dharma Swara, Josh Graham – guitar, Fabian Almazan – piano, Desmond White – bass, and Paul Wiltgen – drums, with IIVII and Kristin Flammio also joining the bill.

“[Nerissa] is in that Billie Holiday mold. Her voice is mysterious, elegant, and moody.” -the daily iowan
“Melanc holic, Cat Power-like lyrics, a Billie Holiday-esque timbre and a touch of Norah Jones in her swooping croon, tumultuous emotions characterize Nerissa Campbell’s [music]” -xpress magazine
Dedicated to the traditions of Balinese performing arts and committed to exploring new music, New York City’s Gamelan Dharma Swara is carving out a compelling niche. Founded in 2000, Dharma Swara is one of the leading Balinese gamelan and dance groups in the United States and has performed at renowned NYC music venues including (le) Poisson Rouge, Symphony Space, Joe’s Pub, Roulette, and BAM, as well as cultural institutions such as MoMA and Asia Society. The group toured Bali in 2010 with an invitation to perform in the Bali Arts Festival’s popular Battle of the Bands, and most recently, a stunning performance at Basilica Soundscape in Hudson, New York, was described by The New Yorker as feeling “straight-up religious” and provoked “perhaps the weekend’s most rapturous response (including a fair amount of crying.)”
The ambient-fiction project of visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh Graham.
Founding member of Red Sparowes and Battle of Mice, Graham currently plays in A Storm of Light, and has also made appearances with Jarboe, Blood and Time, Tombs, Syndrome, Fallen Black Deer, and Tribes of Neurot.
Live shows will mix guitar, analogue and digital keyboards, cassette loops, and more. IIVII focuses on sonically engulfing and moody soundscapes, layered with a science-fiction edge. This approach has allowed Josh to expand his sonic body of work and explore new electronic territory, focusing on the subtle orchestration and manipulation of dense sonic atmospheres.
Depicting a derelict space colony in view of Saturn, the artwork was also completed by Graham, who currently serves as art director to Soundgarden, and has also worked with many bands including, Neurosis, Jesu, Shrinebuilder, Sleep, Vattnet Viskar, and ISIS.
