INTERPRETATIONS: Yasunao Tone / Adachi Tomomi

Tuesday, May 25, 2010. 8:00 pm

Contemporary music from two generations of Japan’s experimental music community. Yasunao Tone became active in the Fluxus movement in the 1960s and moved to the United States in 1972. Tone will premiere his MP3 Corruption Piece, a new system for live performance, based on the real-time corruption of mp3 files to generate data that controls the playback of various audio materials. Japanese performer/composer, sound poet, and installation artist Tomomi Adachi will present musical interpretations of sound poetry, including works by renowned Dadaist Hugo Ball and Japanese 60’s concrete poetry proponent Niikuni Seiichi, using voice, laptop, original interfaces, and homemade instruments.
