Cascading Slopes is the new project of Jacob Graham, founding member and synthesist of indie-pop group The Drums. He began his professional music career a decade ago touring and playing synthesizers for the seminal Christian synth-pop band Joy Electric.
With Cascading Slopes, Jacob returns to his roots, once again surrounded by radiant, intricately layered synthesizers crafted in the fashion and discipline of the great synthesizer pioneers of old. Electronic music's propensity for the experimental and the avant-garde is all but absent here, replaced instead with concise songs arranged comfortably in the popular folk style.
In concert Cascading Slopes is a fully realized electronic chamber orchestra with the assistance of David Barnhart and René Pérez on synthesizers and Caleb Graham providing live electronic rhythms.
