Japanese experimental sound artist Fuji||||||||||ta at Warhol Museum, June 20.

via 33-33.

Japanese experimental sound artist Fuji||||||||||ta will perform at the Warhol Museum on June 20.
We welcome Japanese experimental sound artist, FUJI||||||||||TA (pronounced Fujita) on his first U.S. tour. His unique practice utilizes various natural phenomena that respond to his interest in wanting to hear unheard sounds and noises. In 2009, Fujita hand fabricated a pipe organ that has only 11 pipes and no keyboard. Designed to create a soundscape rather than function as a more traditional musical instrument, he has added a water element, with sound synthesized water tanks. The music blends water sounds from multiple aquariums alongside his pipe organ and voice. Since 2006 he has had many solo performances and collaborative works with musicians, including ∈Y ∋ (Boredoms), Akio Suzuki, Keiji Haino and Koichi Makigami. He has presented his sound installation works in many contexts and was exhibited in Sapporo International Art Festival 2017.
The show starts at 7:00 pm and tickets are available online. The museum is located at 117 Sandusky St. on the North Shore (map).
