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

Green Music

Francesco Cavaliere and Tomoko Sauvage re-interpret the work by the fluxus artist and composer Henning Christiansen. For their installation and performance, the duo plays green sculptures and instruments combining mineral, glass, plants and painted synthesizers.

Dambi Kim

Dambi Kim is the host of Meditative Sounds (冥想曲) delivering the serenity and transience of life through tea, incense, words and audio. By playing a Korean traditional black zither, called the geomungo, Kim was first introduced to the way of tea in 2014. Philosopher Sen Rikyu’s wabi-cha teaching was a major inspiration when she fell in love with Chinese tea during a sojourn in Europe, which she now studies along with incense under a Chinese tea Master.

Manuel Roßner

Manuel Roßner is a visual artist working with the notion of space in a digital context. He creates parallel realities using tools intended for games or special effects. Often they extend our real environment like the recent extension for NRW-Forum in Düsseldorf. For インフラ INFRA he created the Design and Animations.
