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

Makoto Taniguchi

Makoto Taniguchi is a Tokyo based artist who finished his studies in intermedia art at Tokyo University of the Arts. His work is based on the imagery of girls in Japan as they appear as characters in comics and anime, and as heartthrobs and idols. These images of girls, passed down steadily to Taniguchi since his youth in the 1980s, are acknowledged as a common, general occurrence within contemporary Japanese society.

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.

Toiret Status

Toiret Status is a musician who compares his production to excretion, and works with the theme “mizu ni nagasu”, which is a Japanese expression that literally translates to “let flow in the water”. He creates music on simple applications and tools such as GarageBand, iPhone and iPad. 2015, in a collaboration with DJWWWW, Toiret Status released “YamaGucci” on Wasabi Tapes. 2016, “◎ omaru ◎” was released from Orange Milk Records.
