Tokyo's international Festival
for Music and Visual Culture.

東京を拠点とするサウンドギャラリーEBM(T)と、ベルリンを拠点に活動を行う3hd Festivalは、フェスティバル「インフラ INFRA」 を8月19日から8月26日まで開催いたします。

インフラ INFRAは、デジタルカルチャー時代におけるアート、音楽、思想を、美術館や、ギャラリー、クラブ、そしてオンラインという場を介して開催される、今までにはないフェスティバルです。

基礎や基盤を意味する インフラ INFRAという名前は、アーティスト、参加者にとっての新しい基盤を意味しています。

Berlin’s 3hd Festival and Tokyo-based EBM(T) Gallery are combining forces to work on インフラ INFRA 2017 in Tokyo, running August 19 to 26.

An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

The name インフラ INFRA is a play on the abbreviated form of ‘infrastructure,’ and breaks new ground for participants.

Artists

Foodman

食品まつり a.k.a Foodman is an electronic music producer and visual artist based in Tokyo. His renaissance-like take on and knowledge of music is probably the most positively disconcerting trait of his work. He negotiates various song forms and combines diverse genres – ranging from techno, house, pop, raw electronic percussion to concretism, footwork, and ambient – with an incredibly creative, musical, and wild take on melody, harmony, timbre and syncopation.

LARRY

Larry is a DJ from the underground music scene in Berlin dedicated to discovering new sounds and music cultures on the Internet. Her sets are clearly intended for an experience – without any loyalty towards a certain BPM or genre. In 2011, Larry co-founded platforms such as the party and label Creamcake, interdisciplinary music and art event 3hd Festival and インフラ INFRA.

Johanna Odersky

Johanna Odersky is a Frankfurt-based artist who currently studying Fine Arts at Städelschule. In her sculptural work, Odersky is interested in the silhouettes separating the inside from the outside, and the mechanisms emerging from them: inclusion, exclusion and domestication. Thinking of exteriority as a form of resistance to contemporary claustrophobia, she simultaneously tries to build up and to break thoughts and their borders. A circular movement, in which one does not get closer to an exact definition, but instead is led to inexhaustible regress.
