  • Sound Around 003

A collaboration by outstanding artists from the Kansai music scene

This is the third iteration in a series showcasing performances by artists whose practices center on music in ways that transcend disciplines and conventions. This time, the remarkable performer and composer Koshiro Hino is the “host,” presenting new music with a focus on the act and format of composition, and created with electronics as well as marimba, vibraphone, and other percussion instruments. Hino’s collaborators include Ken Furudate, known for his previous work with Dumb Type and Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Masayoshi Fujita, who is active as a vibraphone and marimba performer and composer at home and abroad. Their interests and concerns intersecting, and referencing and citing known composition methods and techniques, the team will search for new approaches to composing by requestioning the relationship between score and performer. Artists and audiences together reflect on the theme of composition, engaged with at ROHM Theatre Kyoto here for the first time.
