Artist: WADA, TASHI
Title: Gradient
Format: 7"
Label: De Stijl
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Tashi Wada is a San Francisco-based composer and performer whose recent work focuses on sound perception as a basis for direct modes of listening. His work has been performed throughout the United States and Europe, and for several years now he has performed alongside his father, Yoshi Wada. Gradient is two sustained tones, a fourth apart, positioned along a wall, one at each end. The string player produces a very slow glissando from one pitch to the other while physically moving from one pitch to the other -- in other words, the string player moves so that pitch distance coincides with spatial distance. The two possible directions form a sculpture-like presence shifting through all of the blue notes. Harry Partch often worked with this type of harmony, so Tashi and Marc Sabat used one of his adapted violas for the recording." -De Stijl.

Title: Duets
Format: LP
Label: Saltern
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Tashi Wadas Duets LP is the first release from Saltern, his new imprint distributed through Important Records. Duets features a recording of Wadas series of string duos brilliantly realized by cellists Charles Curtis and Judith Hamann. From Curtis liner notes: "How far can we enter into a single moment, such that for that brief speck of time, for an instant, unison is registered? This would suggest a different sense of unison, as a state of complete integration hidden behind the disparity and change caused by the passing of time." Edition of 425. Recorded by Tom Erbe and cut at 45 RPM by Rashad Becker. Pressed at RTI and housed in jackets with design by Marco del Rio and printed at Stoughton. Cover image by Marcia Hafif." - Saltern.

Title: Alignment
Format: LP
Label: Yik Yak
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Yik Yak is proud to present Alignment, the first ever release of music by Tashi Wada, son and collaborator of Yoshi Wada. Alignment pairs the direct and retrograde motions of an eight violin canon in just intonation. The canon gradually cycles through the first 128 pitches of the harmonic series which are transposed into one octave. Marc Sabat plays all eight violin parts, resulting in a true synthesis of vision between the composer and performer. Mastering by Rashad Becker. Design and silk screens by Alan Sherry. Includes a letterpress print of a type drawing by Tashi Wada. Limited edition of 400." - Yik Yak.
