Volume 19 of the “sound tectonics” live concert series showcasing cutting-edge sound art and music from Japan and abroad features U-zhaan, Shinza Dopeness and Tamaki Roy. In addition to a freestyle live performance by these three artists, the program includes a virtual concert with prerecorded live footage.
People today encounter music in various ways at various locations, including live music venues, clubs and outdoor festivals. But isn’t our daily life actually full of other places and situations that hold the same potential to function as stages for music? Combining aspects of technology and “imaginative use of locations,” this concert explores new possibilities regarding the presentation and experience of live music. Established meanings are cleverly reinterpreted by temporarily filling a space with music that normally serves a completely different purpose.
This YCAM event combines a virtual concert in the form of video footage of previous live performances at various locations inside the YCAM building (about 25 min.), and a freestyle live performance by the featured artists (about 5 min.). Look forward to an adventurous musical journey with impromptu performances combining such unlike elements as rap and tabla playing.
