Medina/Walsh explore the intersection between contemporary folk, drone, ambient, noise, and electronic music. The duo is a paradox unto itself: Medina, a self taught finger-style guitarist and Walsh, a sound artist, synth guru, and classically trained composer. Their compositions reflect this dichotomy in style as well as sound, gentle serenity often leads to jarring dystopia with Medina switching between acoustic and electric instrumentation.
