Sun Araw is the experimental psychedelic musical project of the Los Angeles-based artist Cameron Stallones. A solo project that blossomed out of his participation in the rock collective Magic Lantern, Stallones describes Sun Araw’s sonic transmissions as “an attempted geosynchronous orbit with the Eternal Now.”
Beginning with The Phynx in 2008, a consistent flow of full-length, EP, and various other releases, including this year’s The Saddle Of The Increate, span from psychedelic drone to melted afrobeat, from warped dub to minimalism. In 2011, Cameron and M. Geddes Gengras traveled to Jamaica where they produced and recorded a collaboration album with roots reggae legends The Congos, titled Icon Give Thank, which reached number seven on the Billboard Top World Albums chart.
Sun Araw performs two improvisational sets on a rooftop feature of the South Pavilion. Visitors may take in the performance from above, on the South Pavilion Terrace, and from below, on the Courtyard.
