“Vancouver finally achieves transcendence through drone. Quiet City looks to provide a proper home for the deep-listening experience.” -Scout Network

Established in January 2010, Quiet City is a series of concerts in Vancouver focused on live performances of experimental, electronic, and improvised music in a comfortable and intimate setting. Limited capacity, advance tickets highly recommended.

Tashi Dorji grew up in Bhutan on the eastern side of the Himalayas, and has resided in North Carolina since 2000. Soaking up a vast array of music 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. His compositions drag the listener into a labyrinth of warbling tones, where each sound seems to jump out and replace the eerie silence that would otherwise occupy the atmosphere. The textures remain sustained in the reverberation as the vibration of the strings dwindle and ascend.
