Once a month we invite a foreign guest who is doing something ... anything creative to share their experiences. The event's a gathering of like minded people discussing a variety of issues in a relaxed, immmersive environment. Stimulated by new information, new people and new experience.
EFFERVECHO : machìna x Shohei Fujimoto
This month we have invited Korean born Tokyo based electronic musician machìna to perform an experimental live performance in collaboration with the Japanese artist Shohei Fujimoto. machìna is driven to push the boundaries of live music beyond the realms of sound and into a world of light, music and installation. Together they will create an effervescent atmosphere of bubbles and echos and we invite you to join us in this underwater happening and float along to the sound waves. Challenging art in an informal public setting, we hope that you can come along for the swim.
For this FISH TANK we will begin with a short 30 minute guided live improvisation with the artist. machìna will talk us through the complexity and contradictions of her modular synthesiser and other gear, as the audience is invited to enter the world of hardcore (*otaku) electronic sounds. She will also be open to questions and we can all try to make sense of how all those cables somehow amount to nice music.
After a short reception the artists will then re-curate the space and perform a 40 minute experimental performance of orchestrated light and sound. This will be a brief insight into their future direction, and hopefully a new musical experience for all us swimming fish.
The artists details are below:
machìna is an energetic, slightly obsessive and extremely charming Korean artist working and operating out of Tokyo. Her obsessions have led her to explore the realms of sound and texture with an eclectic collection of gear. Her energy has driven her to never sit still, and to always look for something more. Her charm is in the way she can fuse abstract sounds with deeply engaging lyrical content.
She is motivated by the pursuit of a harmony between layers of technology, time andemotion. The balance of vintage equipment and gramophone samples with modular technology transcends time. The dialogue of electronic sounds and vocal melody explores an ambiguity that reflects the contemporary condition. Her music will make you dance, make you feel, and make you appreciate the light and texture of sound. Her live set up is based around a modular system with live voice oscillator and analogue synthesizer. She improvises with live sampling and vocals to create an encompassing sound experience.
machìna released her first full length LP in Japan in 2017 and in March 2018 released a demo of her latest work on tape, titled Reboot.
Japanese artist Shohei Fujimoto was born in Japan in 1989 and works in Tokyo. He creates installation, sculpture and visuals by using extensive computer programming. In his work he aims to suggest the possibility of new visual representations.
