Tadzio is one of the many projects of Nick Hudson. Nick is composer, pianist, vocalist, guitarist and producer based in Brighton, UK. His work's highly diverse, sometimes entirely solo, sometimes with members of a diverse pool of musicians collectively known as 'The Academy of Sun' and sometimes in other collaborative arrangements.
”Terry Riley aficiocondos and Elbow pseud-post-rock despisers, this 23 minute mini-epic hits hard. Brighton’s loutish sleaze is no benchmark for Tadzio’s Rock-turned-Ambient excursion. Beginning as a raga-ish speechless malaise, transforming to brighter territory with pin-pricks of percussion. Rounded off with flavoursome, vocalised structure that texturally counter-produces the former self. Imagine a friend who you tried painfully to keep hold of, quietly severing into the wild, where you can neither reach them, nor where you are attempting to track down any way possible. You’re going to feel torn, but alleviated as a result of this, rightly or wrongly, being the best move. Tadzio’s progress bolsters the effects of disconnection, pulling anticipation apart, but you’re thankful for each sections’ quick diffuse.”
