- Format: CD
Acclaimed by The New Yorker as 'a star of Seattle's new music scene who has been deeply influenced by Japanese Noh theatre and Chinese opera,' Garrett Fisher brings together a collective of diverse artists and performers that challenges the boundaries of music, movement and theater. Garrett Fisher's music combines pop, classical, and such influences as Indian and Japanese musical traditions and is written for such instruments as harmonium, koto, gongs, vocalists, as well as recorded rhythms and electric guitar. His "operas" are haunting, intuitive, driving, and mathematical, sometimes narrative and at other points abstract; they blend raga-like improvisation with highly structured ensemble work. Layered with masks, movement, acting, and words, these full evening pieces defy categorization.
