Gregg Kowalsky (US / Experimental Ambiant / Kranky)
LA resident Gregg Kowalsky completed an MFA in Electronic Music at Mills College in Oakland and recorded two solo albums, 2006's 'Through the Cardinal Window' and 2009's 'Tape Chants'. The last decade has seen Kowalsky concentrate on installations and conceptual pieces, alongside his work in Date Palms (his duo with Marielle Jakobsons). 'LOrange', released in November 2017 by Mexican Summer, is Kowalskys first solo album in eight years, is mainly sourced from analogue synths and mixed on a laptop; nodding to Terry Riley at times. «L'Orange is some of Kowalsky's most rewarding work yet.» (Drowned In Sound.)
