An ambitious festival of art, music, and thought in the digital age, the program unfolds in museums, galleries, clubs, and online.

Artists

Tomoko Sauvage

Tomoko Sauvage, Japanese musician and artist, investigates the sculpturality of sound and improvisation in relation to the environment. Mainly known for a musical / visual research about ‘natural synthesizer’ of her invention, composed with diverse fluid, bowls, ceramic, light and underwater amplification, Sauvage’s approach is attached to questions of alchemy, meditation and balance between hazard and mastery. Under the form of performances, installations and musical compositions, her work is regularly presented in Europe, Asia and America.

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.

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.
