Northside Festival has ended

Dustin Wong

Dustin Wong, former guitarist for both the hyper-kinetic rock band Ponytail and the loose and crunchy experimentalists Ecstatic Sunshine, now gets lost in beautiful guitar noise all his own. In the studio, Wong sets his guitar through a labyrinthine pedal series: looping, distorting, delaying, oscillating his sounds until they form overwhelming, enveloping blankets of pure sound. As the dizzying process is based on his live playing technique, it’s a magic trick he’s able to conjure at will.
