RISD is an upbeat and bouncy song that really highlights Marco Benevento’s skills at their effects-out best. Driving drums, spacey synth and digital sirens build into a piano led moon walk. An echoey melody takes it slow but with a bouncing tom drum beat. Organ harmonies punctuate the piano part, which gets louder and more twinkly as the song peaks.
Benevento, of Brooklyn, New York, is on tour much of the summer and can be seen across the country. Catch him at High Sierra Festival on the west coast. He recently released a limited edition 7” vinyl featuring a collaboration with Phish bassist Mike Gordon.Marco Benevento – RISD by Marco Benevento (RPF)
