Dorian Wood is currently causing a great stir with his musical output. Intimate, powerful and evocative he pushes the alleged boundaries of genre and gender. His body, his voice and his ears are the main elements, the tools he wields like a master of ceremonies. On stage, Wood conceives the body in its nakedness as a costume, comparable to a special evening gown you only don at rare occasions. It is particularly this distinct perception of the human body that positions the artist – who has meanwhile also collaborated with Marina Abramovic – close to performance art. Musically, Wood is hailed as an exceptional artist and his singing voice has been compared to Antony, Nick Cave or Tom Waits. He directed the video for his song »La Cara Infinita«, his latest album »Rattle Rattle« features 60 musicians, and he also did the artwork for the limited edition vinyl himself. This congenial artist from L.A. is full of surprises and seems to have even more in store for us.
