NEW EP “WITHIN the Time and Place”
Listen on Bandcamp
Incorporating a striking audio-visual offering that ties in choreography, electronic music and her tabla training, the composer is currently wrapping up a PhD
Through the run of five tracks, Noriko blends left-field electronica and Indian classical (“CovidWar,”) offers springy jazz (“Those Days,”) gets into a laidback tempo for “Summer Reminiscing” and even performs a short tabla-based India-meets-Japan classical piece called “Tensei Taal: Reincarnation.” The closing title track encompasses all her influences, making for mellow but cerebral electronic music.
“Goa-based Noriko Shakti talks to us about her new EP and erasing artistic borders with her sound”
The EP is a confluence of all the genres Noriko dabbles in — jazz, electronic, bass, breakbeats, chill-hop and, of course, Indian classical.
