Los Angeles–based composer Tashi Wada presents his new group featuring Julia Holter and percussionist Corey Fogel, performing music from Wada’s album Nue. This collaboration ranges from minimalist bagpipes to otherworldly vocals, creating, in Wada’s words, “a vision, an endless night of dreams, and a personal history of sorts, full of joys and demons.” From the doubling of tones—and the world of harmonic nuances such an action produces—to the interplay between individual musicians, Wada’s compositions allow space for these elements to join and grow.  More...
