Paul Wagner is a graduating music major at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. His April 17 show at Zephyr, “Awake but still dreaming,” combined both┬ámusic and painting.┬áThe paintings were hung on the wall surrounding the viewer while Wagner played three sets of different music: percussion, acoustic and a loop station with electric guitar set. His acoustic guitar set was a folk sounding set, but the vibe changed to a groover beat when he played the loop station by piling on rhythmic patterns.
