Tashi Wada with Yoshi Wada and Friends – FRKWYS Vol. 14 – Nue – September 28, 2018

Nue furthers the familial and creative bond between Tashi Wada and his father, Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada, alongside a supporting ensemble including Julia Holter, Simone Forti, Cole MGN, and Corey Fogel for the fourteenth entry of our intergenerational FRKWYS series. Combining synthesis with a spectrum of acoustic instruments and non-equal tempered tuning techniques, Nue is a uniquely personal statement from Tashi Wada compelled by collaboration and the ensuing spaces shared and explored.

Hear the first bellow of Nue below – “Fanfare” brings the full ensemble of Nue together for a group invocation — all of the elements converge and intertwine, weaving in and out of the rush of harmony and cacophony.

Nue will be available in LP, CD and digital forms on September 28, 2018.
