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

Nobukazu Takemura

Nobukazu Takemura is a Japanese artist and a composer with a child’s sensibility. He’s been active since the early 90s, focusing his activities on order formation and its processes, quests, and spontaneity through play and affect. Takemura has occupied a unique space between post-rock, electronica and modern experimental music, producing albums Child and Magic, Songbook and Zeitraum. He has broadened his creative output from music into video, installation, painting, poetry, and theater from the turn of the millennium.

LARRY

Larry is a DJ from the underground music scene in Berlin dedicated to discovering new sounds and music cultures on the Internet. Her sets are clearly intended for an experience – without any loyalty towards a certain BPM or genre. In 2011, Larry co-founded platforms such as the party and label Creamcake, interdisciplinary music and art event 3hd Festival and インフラ INFRA.

Nile Koetting

Nile Koetting is an artist who works with a diverse range of media including text, film, performance, sound, and installation. His work has been presented at ZKM in Karlsruhe, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, and Maison Hermes Foundation in Tokyo amongst others. He is the co-founder of sound gallery EBM(T) and co-founder of インフラ INFRA.
