Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA. January 28, 2013. KPFK 90.7FM ‘Travel Tips for Aztlan’ kicks off 2013 with a LIVE in Studio Concert Performance series direct from its legendary Studio A, beginning with L.A.-based avant –soul artist DORIAN WOOD on Saturday, February 2, 2013.

Los Angeles-based Studio A at KPFK’s ‘Travel Tips for Aztlan 90.7 FM’ program, hosted by producer/founder Mark Torres and co-host Mariluz González, is a special venue where performers can feel a special connection to the audience as well as their music. Studio A nights are always unforgettable, and this week is no exception, with guest performer DORIAN WOOD, whose musical prowess offers an impeccable mix of folk, soul, Bulgarian, choral and experimental sounds.

DORIAN WOOD will share with the ‘Travel Tips for Aztlan’ audience music from his new album, “Rattle, Rattle”, an epic collection of original doomsday-themed songs that form one strong, continuous piece (think Scott Walker re-doing Brian Wilson’s Smile, with nods to Tom Waits and Nick Cave). This album incorporates over 75 musicians, including a 45-member choir assembled by Dorian himself, The Difficult Women, as well as guitarist Michael Corwin (Correatown), bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing, Fiona Apple), trumpetist Daniel Rosenboom (Josh Groban), violinist Paul Cartwright (Father John Misty) and members of the avant-jazz orchestra Killsonic.” Rattle Rattle” also features duets with Angela Correa (Correatown, Les Shelleys), Leah Harmon (Petrojvic Blasting Company), Eddika Organista (El Haru Kuroi) and renowned French artist Nina Savary.

“Armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon” (WNYC Culture), DORIAN WOOD is a wunderkind with a headstrong DIY discipline. He has brought his emotionally-charged performances to concert halls, museums, music venues and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker, Nina Simone, Nick Cave and Tom Waits.

Born in Echo Park, California, Dorian began his musical education at a very early age, continuing his studies at Conservatorio de Castella in Costa Rica, and eventually making his way back to Los Angeles, where he first gained exposure performing on the queer bar circuit. His debut album, BOLKA, received wide critical acclaim for its impeccable merging of folk, soul, Bulgarian choral music and experimental music. His follow-up EP, Black Pig Suite, featured members of the L.A. experimental orchestra Killsonic, of which Dorian was a principal collaborator and performer for 3 years.

In early 2010, Dorian was joined onstage by legendary artist Little Annie at (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York. That same year, Dorian received critical praise for his performance and “picture perfect” art direction (Los Angeles Times) in the Killsonic opera, Tongues Bloody Tongues, presented at the REDCAT in Los Angeles. Dorian performed at the REDCAT again in 2011 in the opera Zoophilic Follies, along with Timur and The Dime Museum.

In 2011, Dorian was commissioned by LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) to present a new work for the performance series Los Angeles Goes Live, part of Pacific Standard Time. Dorian’s performance installation, Athco, Or The Renaissance of Faggot Tree, incorporated over 30 performers, and was presented at Barnsdall Art Park. That same year, Dorian performed with acclaimed artist Marina Abramovic in her piece An Artist’s Life Manifesto, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).

Dorian has also performed at LACMA, UCLA, Highways Performance Space (Santa Monica), Pacific Design Center (West Hollywood), The Stone (New York City), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco) and the Stockholm Fringe Fest (Sweden).
