This exhibition features one part of his 2014 show at the Hara Museum entitled “The Dream of Polifilo.”

Musical Performance : Kukangendai

Music performed by Kukangendai, a three piece band, is created by their concept of edit, copy, repeat, and error. In recent years, the group has been trying an experiment with their performance, to mix in different songs together during their live performances to create an environment of unified rhythm.

Musical Performance: Skynet

Formed in 2016 the sound modeling group Skynet uses sounds from discarded machines that no longer hold any purpose to release their innovative new sound based on the noise of an increasingly digitized world. The group offers a new explanation of noise born from objects created based on the band’s intersection of improvised language and dramatic techniques.

Musical Performance : Lafidki

Lafidki is the performance name used by Cambodian French musician Saphy Vong. His sound is created by the seemingly effortless mixing of duplicated rhythms, noise, and abstract machine noise. Saphy’s live performances are all an experiment in decisions and spontaneous thoughts based on the space and the energy of the crowd.

[Salle Inabata]

Musical Performance : Kikiilimikilii

Kikiilimikilii is a solo project started by French Video-audio artist Samuel Trifot in 2010 and has been performing in countries around the world. The music is mix of improvisation, an echo chorus, and an exotic element. We hope you enjoy the calming rhythm and psychedelic noise trance.
