"quartets" is a performance piece that happens only in the video streaming system. Eight musicians performed improvisation individually for the recording, as they imagined a session with the others. In this piece, the performances are blended or combined at random, and each time a whole new set of improvised music comes to exist. In "quartets", we will conceive the meaning of ensemble and questioning how we could imagine "others" in this isolated and increasingly complex situation.
Sound Tectonics #24: Mystic Rhythm
SENYAWA / Wukir Suryadi & Rully Shabara (ID) & Kakushin Nishihara (JP)
Sound Tectonics is a long-run series of live performances and music events that have been held by YCAM since 2004. This program emphasizes listening experience through a different aspect of music production, sound art, and stage production. This time, we want to highlight the possibilities between modern (audio) technology and traditional/ancient sounds by inviting Senyawa (Indonesia) and Kakushin Nishihara (Japan). Both musicians are known to combine those two aspects and bring a new sound.
