Less of a band, more of an art project - Menteur is a performance collective that incorporates paint, light design, and crowd participation to create unique live experiences. To preserve the "experience" many recordings are done binaurally, using their binaural dummy head recorder (and psuedo-frontman) Frank Head.
Menteur was founded by Carter Fourqurean and Sam Reeves, inspired by recording sessions where Carter would create sounds and textures with loopers and cassette recorders while Sam would paint to the sound.
Currently Menteur consists of 35 musicians, painters, performers, actors, videographers, technicians, light designers, and producers - many of which are active in other projects. Every performance is different, and there are often different performers at every show, and for every album.
