Tashi Dorji

Early acoustic guitar improv performances from the Bhutanese expat, who’d come to Asheville, NC to study in 2000 and discovered worlds of anarcho-punk and avant garde such as he’d only dreamed. Having made recordings of his newly-located improvisational conception, he intuited a desire to go deeper in his explorations of the recorded sound of the guitar, melding and colliding traditional music with his feeling for the range of textures within.

All tracks except "April" recorded by Flora Wolpert Checknoff and Michael Flanagan, Nov. 2012 Lipinsky Studio.
