I heard they found LWSD in a cave on the moon. At least, that’s what they’re saying.

Dave King (aka Longwalkshortdock) got his inspiration from 80’s video game sounds. Yes, you read that right. King learned to loop tracks by recording his piano lessons and playing them over and over to hide Nintendo sounds from his parents. And so begins Longwalkshortdock. 

Longwalkshortdock performs with live vocals, synthesizers, drum machines, guitar, effects, toys, computers and even some of his own strobes and lighting. Not limited to dance music, LWSD's music crosses into many territories. His vast catalogue of hundreds of songs dives into ambient, IDM, electro, acid, house, big beat, indie rock, drones, electronica and down tempo.

LWSD has been collaborating with veteran of visual wizardry, Tim Hill of RimVisuals, and they are bringing their show to the festival. Using at least 10 projectors loaded with custom content, the live LWSD experience is nothing short of a full venue transformation into an ethereal spectacle.

You can catch LWSD on Monday April 13th at the Mainstage in Skier's Plaza from 4:00pm - 5:30pm.

Or

With RIM Visuals later that night as a part of the Kokanee Freeride Club Series at the GLC.
