* * * LIONZGATE * * *
Everything in one way or another can be measured as frequency or vibration....
Lionz Gate juxtaposes that simplicity with the tribal nature of a single hand drum controlling a modern electronic music and visual system.
Performing this show as a duo Electro DJ Sam Ryan and Percussionist Jarrett Plett will engage in a truly interactive performance.
The name Lionz Gate, inspired by a recent near brush with death. Sam walked away from a head on car collision on the Lions Gate Bridge spring of 2012 which served as a catalyst to re-evalute and look within, resulting in bringing this project to life.
