Introducing venerated artists of Japan’s musical underground to U.S. audiences, the tour features dream-pop band Ché-SHIZU, Maher Shalal Hash Baz’s “native orchestras,” and the deconstructed romanticism of ac­cordionist à qui avec Gabriel.

Hosted by the Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts, the Wild Beast Concert Series is free and open to the public. Reservations are suggested.

Associated with the Onkyo group in Tokyo, the musicians of the Minor Musics Japan Tour explore the role of silence in shaping and subverting the musical event.

CalArts is located at 24700 Mc­Bean Parkway in Valencia. For more information, visit calarts.edu/wild-beast.
