No Longer Showing.
With an encyclopedic knowledge of Asian and African percussive traditions and a clear kinship with Reich and Glass, the enigmatic percussionist and composer Midori Takada, renowned in Japanese vanguard circles, creates lucid yet expansive sonic textures–variously labeled as ambient, minimal or mystical–that captivate the imagination in her almost ceremonial live shows. In dialogue with the Fourth World musics explored by Jon Hassell, Don Cherry, and Brian Eno–but born of a distinctly Japanese, meditative musical sensibility, her work has a crystalline quality that distills rhythms from around the world, slowly drawing the listener into another reality. Organized by Matthew Lyons.
