Hailing from Kanazawa, Japan, Asuna (aka Naoyuki Arashi) has been creating experimental music and installation work since the late-nineties, going on to become a pioneer in the experimental ambient/drone/improvisation scene in Japan and collaborating with many Japanese and international electronic musicians including German minimal electronic master Jan Jelinek, with whom he released the ‘Signals Bulletin’ LP last year.
Asuna’s current work ‘100 Keyboards’ is a live music performance featuring over 100 keyboards. Multiple sound waves on the same frequency are disseminated in multiple directions, creating a complex distribution of acoustic pressure. This causes what is known as a moiré pattern of sound interference.
In this site-specific listening experience, you will hear subtle variations of sound interference and resonance that vary based on your location in the performance space.
