For more than a decade, Jon Porras has carved out a sprawling, emotionally evocative niche of sound using a variety of sonic elements and associations in his solo work on such seminal imprints as Root Strata, Important Records, and Thrill Jockey Records. But Porras has also been associated with a number of celebrated collaborations, with musicians Evan Caminiti (as Barn Owl), Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Stephen O’Malley, and visual artists Paul Clipson and Wilhelm Sasnal. Tokonoma, released in November 2017 by Geographic North, is Porras’ 5th solo work, ending the almost 4-year silence since his last release, Light Divide on Thrill Jockey. More than a comeback though, the album serves as one of Porras’ most enlightened and enlightening works to date, touching on the dark, expansive tones explored on past releases and shedding light on Porras’ bright future. A new album with Thrill Jockey, Voices of the Air, is forthcoming in 2018.
