Founded in 2015, the Wind Playing Tricks features keyboardist/guitarist Brett Harris, who moved to San Diego from Arizona to earn degree in music composition from the University of San Diego, alongside Brian Kerby (bass) and Jackson Stephens (drums).
The instrumental prog rock trio combines elements of post rock, math rock, jazz, and classical music. Says Harris, “In my studies, I learned that not everything needs to be said in four or three [time signature]. We have one piece that is three/two. And there’s one phrase that’s 7/7/7/6/7.”
