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

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.

Hitoyo Nakano

Hitoyo is a hive mind which is based on the data from the Twitter account “SAZAE BOT” or an anonymous virtual artist who calls oneself “A time traveler from 2061”.

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.
