TUSK Music Presents

TUSK Festival 2019

October 11-13

JOHANN WLIGHT

Awareness of musician Johann Wlight, like his discography and his sublimely elevating music, is very minimal. A small flurry of releases in the early noughties then an unexplained absence until the unheralded reappearance under the name Itdreamedtome in 2017. Almost no writing to be found on his music or his enigma, the merest smattering of releases for sale online, but the sound he creates has us fixated. We almost invited him to open Hall 1 for Terry Riley & Gyan Riley last year but then decided it was too on the nose as a choice. His music rings, chimes, reverberates, washes over you and seeps into your core, distorts time and invokes a feeling of mental elevation. Very minimal tactics deftly applied with perfect results. You’re already packed for this journey.
