Instrumentalize 2009 Fluorescent Night

Monday, August 17, 2009

Atsuhiro Ito will collaborate with Minoru Sato for an evening entitled Instrumentalize09: Fluorescent night. Sato's research and creative activities are explored in the form of installations, performances and written text all in addition to which he is producing sound and more music-oriented works under the name S.A.S.W. Atsuhiro Ito's sound tool, the optron, should prove an adept combo with Sato's more installation-based style and orchestra of self-made instruments. Although, from what I gather they will performing as a fluorescent tube duo.

The less we know, the more we can expect.

Opens at 18:30, starts at 19:00 and costs 1,500 Yen (including 1 drink) at Gift Lab.

We're finally back in town and back on the beat. Just got through a few days of shooting with Atsuhiro Ito and Hiroshi Hasegawa, who's first time ever collaboration we were excited to catch. Now we're just in time to catch Hisham's jam with EYE tonight. The two perform under the name Gatax and are averaging about one performance every two years.

This is a super quick update so please check the link below for more info on the show tonight (yes, tonight- excuse the last minute post) as well as the exhibit which Hisham is curating featuring some of our friends and favorite artists like Zach Hill, Brian Degraw, Bjorn Copeland, EYE and the list goes on.

New videos and interviews to be posted soon, still getting through hours of footage.
