In Fourth Dimension, Adler's compositions invoke an inner world and musical language where surreal landscapes and symmetrical structures are created using textless mantras, disintegrating drones and mind-bending polyrhythms. Joined by New York's top improvisers, Adler and the ensemble weave through peaceful and radioactive terrain with ease and style.
"Adler is a polyrhythmic force... With a penchant for compositions that are mind-bendingly complex and New York City gritty yet still somehow capable of evoking the delicacy of a summer breeze, Brian Shankar Adler shows he’s a bandleader on the rise." ~Brad Cohan, JazzTimes
