opening night: Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda
Akio Suzuki began his artistic career in 1963, by throwing a bucket filled with clutter onto the steps of a train station. The Japanese artist expected that this would create a pleasing rhythm. Nearly 50 years later, the desire to hear and listen is still central to his work. Suzuki is a performer, instrument builder, inventor, musician and shaman, all combined in one of the most intriguing figures in our world of sound. His music and performances are simple and pure. For this evening, he engages in a musical dialogue with the American Japanese musician, composer and visual artist, Aki Onda, primarily known for his field recordings and Cassette Memories project.
