Last Saturday, The Bottom String sat down with Daniel Hart of The Physics of Meaning and got to talk a bit about what has made Daniel the musician he is, some of his favorite moments in his career, and what's up next for one of North Carolina's best on the scene. When Daniel isn't busy touring with St. Vincent or performing for bands such as Polyphonic Spree, John Vanderslice, Annuals, The Rosebuds, and Pattern is Movement he is writing his own music and performing with The Physics of Meaning.
Daniel immediately caught the attention of everyone in the building at Broad Street Music when he started to play the first notes of the night all alone with his two band mates standing in the crowd. Daniel began his loop on his violin and the crowd all perked up and turned their attention towards the stage. When Daniel began to pluck the familiar opening notes of "Concerning the UFO Sightings Near Highlands" by Sufjan Stevens a select few in the crowd, myself included, felt a huge grin come across their face. After the breath taking performance of a Sufjan favorite, the rest of the band came on stage and it only got better from there. Daniel's voice resonated through the room of Broad Street Music and by the end of the night the entire crowd had fallen in love with The Physics of Meaning. However, before the set even started Daniel graced The Bottom String with a solo performance as well. Covering "Tears in the Typing Pool" by Broadcast, Daniel Hart performed for the first ever Bottom String Session. The video for this can be found below.
