Nicolas Jaar’s Other People is proud to present the new solo album of guitar and live custom electronics artist Patrick Higgins, the American avant-garde composer and producer from New York City. It’s due out on June 1st.
Higgins is known for his work in experimental and contemporary classical music, playing guitar and composing in the ensemble Zs, which is said to be one of the strongest innovative bands in New York. His work as a composer traverses the styles of European avant-garde with the post-minimalist sounds of New York’s history.
His upcoming LP “Dossier” is a four-movement piece performed live without overdubs or edits. All of the samples and synthetic patches were custom built and specifically engaged to become elements of live guitar manipulation.
