Shigeto at the DSO: Mix at the Max

Usually Shigeto a.k.a. Zach Saginaw preforms alone, but this week he will performing with a full band at the DSO. This Thursday, October 23rd Charles Tillinghast (electronics and synth), Josef Deas (Rhodes and percussion) and Brennan Andes (bass) will be joining him on stage. This performance will be outside of the box for the artist. His music is usually so calculated and precise, but with a live band there is always an element of surprise, you never know what is going to happen next. Co-Producer of the show Jon Dones says, "Sitting in on the rehearsal, I could hear strongly the influence of a certain strain of the free-jazz tradition floating in the translations of his music back into the analogue world. It was pretty remarkable. Its a bit of a feat given that his tracks are recorded and layered digitally in a near painterly style that reflect his myriad of influences. The process of reverse engineering the songs back into live instrumentation is something that could really only be accomplished by close collaboration with long time collaborators, like the ones hes assembled." I think this is going to be a once in a lifetime treat, to say the least.

Tickets are only $15 in advance and can be purchased here. The show starts at 10 p.m.  and the DSO is located at 3711 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

Here is a teaser video that was put out to promote the event:
