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

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.

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. 

Nozomu Matsumoto

Nozomu Matsumoto is a sound artist based in Tokyo, co-founder of the sound gallery EBM(T) and co-founder of インフラ INFRA. His work has been presented at galleries such as Yamamoto Gendai and Talion Gallery. Matsumoto has done sound design for many projects including Nile Koetting’s “Sustainable Hours” at Maison Hermés in Tokyo and Kazuyo Sejima + Ryue Nishisawa / SANAA’s lnujima “Landscape Project” during Architecture Biennale in Venice 2016.
