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

Dambi Kim

Dambi Kim is the host of Meditative Sounds (冥想曲) delivering the serenity and transience of life through tea, incense, words and audio. By playing a Korean traditional black zither, called the geomungo, Kim was first introduced to the way of tea in 2014. Philosopher Sen Rikyu’s wabi-cha teaching was a major inspiration when she fell in love with Chinese tea during a sojourn in Europe, which she now studies along with incense under a Chinese tea Master.

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.

H. Takahashi

Takahashi is an architect and composer born in Tokyo. DIY at the core, Takahashi produces with simplicity – shredding all unnecessary steps. Composed in GarageBand on an iPhone, Takahashi’s characteristically ambient works have been released by labels such as Where To Now? (UK) and Constellation Tatsu (US). He also composes for an ambient unit, Unknown Me.
