Live actions by Tashi Wada are comparatively rare here, even though he lives in Los Angeles, so tonight is a deeply weird treat. Son of Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada — with whom he regularly collaborates — Tashi is a drone proponent and master at shifting tones so that a whole landscape of sound unveils itself in front of your ears before you realize that you’ve switched continents. He appears tonight with sometime La Monte Young associate and cellist Charles Curtis (no slouch at drones himself), composer Julia Holter and bassoonist Dafne Vicente-Sandoval to perform a trio of lengthy works delving deep into themes of tuning and tonality. If ever you wanted to experience the sound reverberating at the heart of a star without burning your nuts off, this is about as close as you’ll get.
