Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon

Tashi Dorji (electric guitar) & Tyler Damon (drums/percussion) reside in separate locales but have come together from a place of mutual admiration. The pair has scarcely spoken of intention regarding their music yet channel a sound which seems to reference the familiar and the non-idiomatic at once. Flashes of ecstatic intensity, blurred timbral lines, fractal repetition, noir-ish, cinematic mystery and inclinations toward free play suggest that the two are pleased to follow a winding path to destinations yet unknown.

“Together, the combination of Dorji’s high-end metallic power-tool skree and Damon’s manic-but-earthy hippie clomping are a perfect pairing. Each has a musical spoon in the other guy’s soup to begin with, resulting in a collaboration that seems almost brotherly. […] I’d say expect great things, but they’re already happening.” – The Free Jazz Collective

“Damon draws so many sounds out of his kit so quickly and with such intention and imagination it’s hard to imagine it coming from one person.” – Dusted Magazine

    Dorji & Damon Captured In Milwaukee

    October 9, 2017

    Did you catch Tashi Dorji and Tyler Damon on their recent tour? We did. Got to experience their pure light with a hundred (or was it two hundred?) awe-struck folks crammed into a sweltering room in Louisville at Cropped Out. Blissful. If you missed out, give thanks to the fine Milwaukee Taper -- www.milwaukeetaper.com -- for recording the duo's set at Acme Records and Music Emporium on Sept. 14, 2017. Richard Hayes wonderfully captured this spectacular evening of percussion and shadow scree and it is available here for you, for free. Get it. (Robert Szocik snapped the gents in action.)

  • Tashi Dorji & Tyler Damon Live at 'First Thursday'

    November 5, 2016

    "An ultra-special performance by solo percussionist Tyler Damon and avant-garde guitarist Tashi Dorji in the reverberated halls of the exquisite Grunwald Gallery, located on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, Indiana. This concert was part of IU's 'First Thursday' event series, and the dynamic precision between these two masterful musicians was a compelling addition, filling the minimalist white halls with reverberated audio cacophony." -- Deathwave TV
