David Last

David Last is a sound and visual artist living in San Francisco. Over the last 18 years his work has appeared in a variety of contexts including albums & singles, art installation, film & television soundtracks, animation and handmade books. Last year’s album “Meow Wolf’s Arcade Soundtracks” was a smirking reference to neon-splashed electro-funk aesthetics, and a collaboration with his partner Chelsea Faith Dolan (aka Cherushii), who was lost in the Ghost Ship fire in December. This year, Last has spent his time in the studio they’d shared, creating emotionally charged psychedelic compositions which tend toward rich texture and constantly-shifting harmonic tones. The Gray Area Festival will mark his first performance of this material.
