Liquid Music joins forces with pioneering organizations MASS MoCA, Baryshnikov Arts Center and Indianapolis Museum of Art in commissioning and presenting Holographic, a new album and performance series created by Paris-born composer Daniel Wohl. Critics have celebrated Wohl’s work as a “boldly surreal aural experience” (New York Times) and applauded his aptitude for crafting music that can “transport, unsettle and delight all at once" (NPR). Wohl’s sophomore album (releasing January 29 on New Amsterdam Records) produced by Paul Corley (Oneohtrix Point Never, Ben Frost) expands his lush sound world through collaborations with guest artists Lucky Dragons, Olga Bell, Caroline Shaw and ensembles Bang on a Can All-Stars, Mantra Percussion, Mivos Quartet and Iktus Percussion. For the Saint Paul iteration of Holographic, Wohl calls on the talents of Mantra Percussion and the Holographic String Quartet (featuring members of Flux Quartet and String Noise), blending the virtuosic talents of his performers and a newly commissioned visual component by artist Daniel Schwarz with rich electronic creations to bring his spellbinding multimedia work to life.
Tickets: $20 ($15)
