Event Runs 10 - 13th October

1hr 30min session each night - 8pm


The music of multi-instrumental sound artist Asuna has reshaped multiple facets of the experimental music scene of Japan, from ambient and drone to improvisation.

Asuna’s landmark work 100 Keyboards is a site-specific listening experience in which one hundred battery operated keyboards are sensitively brought to life, generating an undulating sonic harmony both mesmerising and mysterious. The crowd of sounds takes on its own kind of mass, while subtle acoustic variations emerge, hover and retreat.

Since the late 1990s Asuna has created experimental sound works that vault genre divides, crossing from hip-hop to hardcore punk to freak folk noise and low-fi pop. Performances might feature sound sources as diverse as popping candy, wind-up toys and kazoos, but the playfulness of the compositions belie the profound sensibilities of a true avant-garde artist.
