  • tashi dorji & frank meadows – number six is sacred – cabin floor esoterica

    out of stock

    Over these two sides Tashi Dorji (guitar) and Frank Meadows (string bass) have awakened something. The sounds they bring forth from their instruments are wrestled rather than coaxed, terrifying and almost mechanical. There are moments where you could be sure you are hearing the sounds of some ancient rusted device grinding itself back to life. But underneath it all runs a warmth that could only come from hands. For every smack & shake there is something unseen pulling you closer. Edition of 100 in chipboard boxes with pasted on art, two inserts & an old screw.

    Tashi Dorji grew up in Bhutan, on the eastern side of the Himalayas. Access to any music created outside the country is limited, as are most cultural options, given the geologically isolation of the country. How Dorji went from a life so remote to developing his innovative and revelatory guitar style is mind-boggling. Yearning for access to the world outside, Dorji pursued and obtained a fully-paid scholarship to a liberal arts school in Asheville, NC, in his early twenties. He’s since settled in there (save a short stint in Maine), soaking up a vast array of music, most notably the works of Derek Bailey and John Zorn. Along the way, Dorji developed a playing style unbound by tradition, yet with a direct line to intuitive artistry. His recordings feature improvisations that spasmodically grow along tangential, surprising paths. All references break loose during a composition, as Dorji keys into his own inner world. After a handful of cassettes on various labels, Dorji presents his first proper album on Hermit Hut, the label created by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance) and inspired by spreading word of Dorji’s talents. The six compositions here are hand-picked by Dorji and Chasny as the most representative and far-reaching of his recordings. Taken together, they announce a new guitar music unlike anything being made today.
