Composer Daniel Wohl – “beautiful … an original voice” (Pitchfork), “Provocative … surprising” (NPR), “Boldly surreal” (The New York Times) – performs the world premiere of his new album Holographic, joined by the virtuosic ensembles Mantra Percussion and the Holographic String Quartet (featuring members of Flux Quartet and String Noise). Synchronized audio-visuals by Los Angeles-based visual artist Daniel Schwarz will blend with Wohl’s rich electroacoustic creations to bring this spellbinding multimedia work to life.
A groundbreaking new model, Holographic is both an album and series of live performances co-commissioned by BAC; Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Liquid Music in St. Paul, MN; MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA; and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. The album will be released on New Amsterdam Records on January 29, 2016.
