Tashi Wada is a composer and performer based in Los Angeles. His music explores resonance and dissonance, using alternative tunings and simple structures to generate rich and unanticipated perceptual effects. Wada studied composition at CalArts with James Tenney and for many years performed alongside his father Yoshi Wada. Wada has presented his music internationally and collaborated with a range of artists including Charles Curtis, Simone Forti, and Julia Holter. Wada founded and runs the label Saltern. His most recent album Nue was released by RVNG Intl. In Spring 2023, Wada will be the Deutsche Bank Fellow in Music Composition at the American Academy in Berlin.
“Ecstatic drones, unconventional tunings, and a spirit of infinity remain alive in Wada and Holter’s concerts” (Jenn Pelly, The New Yorker).
