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.

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.

Shana Moulton

Shana Moulton is a media artist who explores contemporary anxieties through her filmic alter ego, Cynthia. Moulton has had solo exhibitions and performances at The New Museum, SFMOMA, MoMA P.S.1, Performa 2009, The Kitchen, Electronic Arts Intermix, Art in General, The Andy Warhol Museum, The Migros Museum in Zurich, The Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Times Museum in Guangzhou. Moulton’s work has been reviewed in the Village Voice, Artforum, the Brooklyn Rail, the New York Times, Artnet Magazine, Frieze Magazine, Art Review, Artpress and Flash Art. She is a featured artist at Electronic Arts Intermix and Art21.

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.
