Denton Peter McCabe is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, and composer. McCabe’s cross-disciplinary body of work is focused on exploring the intersection of the primal and intellectual; digital media and traditional media; urban and pop mythology; and the juxtaposition of extremes of abstraction and signification. McCabe’s eclectic musical compositions have involved elements of video art, signal processing, and stage costumes; while his poetry and art are heavily influenced by fetish sexuality, dream material, and critical theory. His past work experience has included roles as a session and touring guitarist in death metal and blues-rock groups, a poet, a score composer for art installation and short films, a collage artist, a club and rave DJ, and sound-installation artist. His compositions have been performed by Musical Amoeba, The Parhelion Trio and Robin Meiksins. McCabe’s artwork and writing have been published by The Superstition Review, Clandestine Ritual Recordings, and The New Mexico Museum of Art.
2017 has seen McCabe involved in the creation of a multimedia project titled Head Worship, which included the creation of a 32 minute experimental film, recordings of original classical compositions and improvisations, a series of 13 large scale canvases, over 20 works on paper, and numerous small pieces of concept art (writings, collages, drawings, photography, etc.)
His recordings are available for purchase/streaming on digital music services such as Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Amazon MP3, and CD Baby.
