ISSUE Project Room presents renowned composer, instrument builder, and Fluxus artist Yoshi Wada, who reprises performances of his early 1970s work “Earth Horns with Electronic Drone” on two evenings at the Emily Harvey Foundation.

About

Wada performs on four original “pipe horn” instruments with a group of local New York players including Nate Wooley, Dan Peck and Jen Baker, and is accompanied on organ and electronics by his son, composer Tashi Wada.

Tashi Wada grew up in New York and lives in Los Angeles. His practice is informed by experimental music and art—particularly the work of artists affiliated with Fluxus, including his father Yoshi Wada—and interdisciplinary performance. Wada's compositions use apparently simple structures and carefully calibrated tuning systems to generate rich and unanticipated perceptual effects. He presents his music often in collaboration with other artists including Charles Curtis and Stephan Mathieu, in addition to performing regularly with his father.
