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

Lyra

Lyra is a singer, composer, and performance artist. She studied classical music in upstate New York, and has called Berlin home for the last three years. In her solo work and collaborations, she embodies the search for sensual mysticism and transcendent emergence of the self within the emotional confines of global capitalism and our ever-more-heavily corporatized digital realms. In both her practices, Lyra commits to feeling, empathy, and listening as the central pathways to self-actualization as well as any affirmative, collective action.

Lars TCF Holdhus

TCF is the project of the Berlin-based Norwegian artist and producer Lars Holdhus. Shifting between art exhibitions and musical performance, TCF’s work explores themes of code, cryptography, and musical composition through the use of visual, sonic, built, and written concepts. His gravity-free compositions create a suspended n-dimensional space whose structure often comes under frenetic attack, creating stress so intense that it threatens to tear the sonic fabric.

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.
