<nettime-ann> exhibition: OTOMO YOSHIHIDE / ENSEMBLES


(Sorry for cross posting)

Dear all,
I'll send you information of an upcoming exhibition hosted by YCAM  
(Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media). We hope you experience this  
ambitious project.

Otomo Yoshihide is an artist who is always pursuing sound on an  
experimental basis in varied areas of music, such as free jazz,  
improvisation, noise music, contemporary music, electronic music, and  
film music. Performing the mediamix of space and image in the  
comprehensive world of sound in a multifaceted way, Otomo presents  
four new installations as YCAM-commissioned work.

The concept of this event is that "ENSEMBLES" composed of many people  
are brought together in further plurality. Musicians, sound creators  
and visual artists in and outside Japan produce various  
collaborations together with citizens to resonate with all the  
audience. Please come and enjoy a new landscape that will be open to  
the view when people come together and mingle.
