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.

Program

6:00 pm — 9:00 pm

TCF: 0A F0 11 6B 5A D7 F9 96

Performance

Shifting between art exhibitions and musical performance, Lars TCF Holdhus work explores themes of code, cryptography, and musical composition through the use of visual, sonic, built, and written concepts.

8:00 pm — 8:30 pm

Y. Ohashi: Chuoku no Biboroku – mental sketch

Concert

Different sounds are composed based on the outcomes of three dice. Available on the market, these dice have a concept of their own – on the package is the following phrase printed: “Let’s use the three cubes to write the future of space”.

6:00 pm — 9:00 pm

H.Takahashi: House

Performance

Time and texture floats inside a house. Taking common images such as morning, afternoon, night, hallway, bedroom, garden, H. Takahashi morphs them into other spaces.

Artists

Emamouse

Emamouse has been recognized as one of the most unique figures in Tokyo’s underground experimental music scene. Her playful sounds often combine “denpa”, a type of Japanese music that features off-key vocals, nonsensical lyrics and an over-the-top tune, and warped MIDI pop songs that recall classic Japanese video game aesthetics. Always hiding behind her signature felt mask, she emerges herself in games and virtual spaces to escape reality.

DJ Paypal

DJ Paypal is one of juke and footwork’s most fascinating figures: The elusive producer, affiliated with Chicago’s Teklife-Crew, his own Mall Music collective, Glasgow underground leaders LuckyMe, and most recently, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, has built a family through online footwork forums, SoulSeek mining, and countless tracks shared across the globe. Ever since, he’s been spinning footwork in novel directions, highlighting the genre’s undervalued sense of playfulness in the process.

Francesco Cavaliere

Francesco Cavaliere is known for the sensitivity with which he combines sounds, materials and space, showing a highly particular taste for the most diverse forms of exoticism. His works are capable of enlivening his listeners’ inner states in an imaginative journey populated by ephemeral presences, phenomena generated by glass, minerals and voices recorded using analogue technologies.
