ISSUE Project Room will present two evenings of pioneering Japanese artists renowned for their unique, interdisciplinary approaches to sound-based practices: Akio Suzuki, Gozo Yoshimasu, and Otomo Yoshihide. The performances will span a wide array of artistic disciplines including literature, sound art, conceptual performance, and improvisation — all converging around a theme of highly personalized, experimental approaches to sound perception, production, and presentation. While Gozo Yoshimasu and Akio Suzuki, seminal figures in the fields of Japanese literature and sound art, respectively, have garnered acclaim throughout Japan and Europe, though their work is largely unknown in North America.
The second evening of “Voices and Echoes” features Akio Suzuki, Gozo Yoshimasu, and Otomo Yoshihide in a series of unique collaborations including Marina Rosenfeld, Jason Lescalleet, Tamio Shiraishi and Cammisa Buerhaus.
