Hailing from the northern beauty of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Hermit Crab is the collaborative project between composer Dave Wall and the instrumental post-rock trio Gary Debussy. Using the classic two guitars/bass/drums rock band format, Hermit Crab works with multiple influences - jazz, minimalism, trance, noise, electronic music - to  create a sound that grows from simple rhythmic interactions and an attention to timbre, into collective improvisation that emphasizes a sense of compositional drive, creating a coherent sound that audiences have described as beautiful and engaging. 

Hermit Crab is:

Dave Wall - composer, guitar

Kyle Cullen - guitar

Tim Wilson - bass

Sean Macintosh - drums, percussion, modular synthesizer
