In 2009, Japanese sound artist Yosuke Fujita hand built a unique pipe organ with eleven pipes, a blacksmith's air pump and no keyboard. Instead of being just another musical instrument, Fujita intended his organ to evoke rich landscapes inspired by the Japanese classical form gakagu, or "elegant music". Now, with an augmented version of the organ that also utilizes sound-synthesized tanks to generate water sounds from multiple aquariums, he explores the sonic depths and possibilities of his own musical instrument on acclaimed albums and intimate live performances. Last year, FUJIIIIIIIIIIIITA performed with his uniquely crafted pipe organ during the online edition of Rewire. This year Yosuke Fujita will bring his equally laborious as meditative performance to a live audience.
FUJI|||||||||||TA performs on Sunday 10 April.
