Composer Tashi Wada collaborates with father Yoshi on Nue LP for RVNG Intl.





“My desire was to create something both old and new sounding — ancient and futuristic…”

RVNG Intl. has announced the 14th instalment of its FRKWYS series, an album by Tashi and Yoshi Wada called Nue, which will be released this September.

“The guiding concept behind [FRKWYS] is to bring contemporary electronic artists together with their creative fore-bearers of sorts and allow them to collaborate as inspired,” explained RVNG Intl. founder Matt Werth to FACT.

Though Tashi and Yoshi – an early member of interdisciplinary art movement Fluxus – frequently perform together, the album marks one of the few occasions they have recorded music in a studio setting.

Nue is a vision, an endless night of dreams, and a personal history of sorts, full of joys and demons,” shares Tashi.

The album also features composer Julia Holter, producer Cole MGN, and percussionist Corey Fogel.

Previously FRKWYS releases include Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani’s Sunenergy, and Blues Control & Laraaji’s Volume 8.
