Tatsuya Yoshida----Japanese new music in OX Warehouse

Price:MOP 80

Tatsuya Yoshida, hallowed drummer of the Japanese underground will make his third visit to Macao on April 9 this year to showcase his supreme musical prowess. In contrast to his two previous concerts here collaborating with Keiji Haino, this time he will partner Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple, the Japanese psychedelic space rock band, and bassist Atsushi Tsuyama. As this special combination, they have already toured Europe four times since 1997, stirring up much excitement in the new music circle with the three-people-seven-group extravaganza! As ZUBI ZUVA X, AKATEN, RUINS ALONE, ZOFFY, SHRINP WARK, ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE SWR and SEIZAZOKU, the three work their magic in styles ranging from a cappella singing, sardonic improvisation, progressive rock, ethnic music, troubadour poetry to psychedelic space rock. In two hours of high density, extreme intensity improvisatory live performance, they will deliver an experience of pure essential contemporary Japanese new music, guaranteed to captivate any audience.

ZUBI ZUVA X (Yoshida/Tsuyama/Kawabata)Eccentric poly-rhythmic a cappella ensemble. It covers from Gregorianchant to ethnic music, to do-wop to hardcore screaming, heavily usingirregular rhythms and polyrhythm. All sorts of ideas and aberrant musicality overturn the image of a cappella. Their totallymeaningless lyrics and desperate performances throw the audiencesinto the abyss of the laughter and admiration. It makes the conceptof "singing ability” nonsense.

AKATEN (Tsuyama/Yoshida)Formed in 1995 with the motto of "irresponsibleness" and"perfunctoriness." They easily free themselves from the spell of thetraditional seriousness of the art. Using daily commodities like scissors, toothbrush, zipper, camera, and plastic bottle aspercussions, and shouting their brand names over and over as the"songs," the show is performed under the concept of low cost andmaximum sound effect. AKATEN is the experimental convenience store punk band that provides the sound images of cheap and simple dailylives.

RUINS ALONE (Yoshida)RUINS is pioneer of Drum & Bass duo. Tunes are complicated andmysterious, and songs are sung in the language of their own invention. It's high-tension, wild, heavy, speedy, acute, andpowerful tremendous ensemble never sounds like they are only twoplayers. since last bassist left Yoshida still seeking a bassist andcurrently he has been playing as RUINS ALONE. playing RUINS songs with sampling bass. this time Yoshida will play songs from KoenjiHyakkei and Korekyojinn too.

ZOFFY (Tsuyama/Kawabata)Formed in 1998. Zoffy's music hints both at the members' deep musicalknowledge via their improvised performances of troubadour music and European trad, and also at their deep love for rock via theirdestructivist covers of classic rock songs, thatno longer sounds like anything but ZOFFY. The group believes thathumor is essential in music, and their unprecedented performances stray far from the beaten track. Is this the Ultima Thule that rockmusic has long been aiming for?

SHRINP WARK (Kawabata/Yoshida)A new improvising duo consisting of Yoshida from Ruins and Kawabatafrom AMT. group inspired by This Heat and band name taken from their song "Shrink Wrap". Cosmic chemical reaction sound that embraces amultidimensional chaos based upon the principles of minimalism, ananarchistic warping of the time axis, and ultra-accelerated revolving of time particles.

ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE SWR (Kawabata/Tsuyama/Yoshida)Acid Mothers Temple have rapidly become acclaimed as the greatest,most extreme trip psychedelic group in the world. Releases haveappeared on labels around the world at an amazing pace, and themagnificence of their live performances is already being whispered ofas legendary. SWR is the AMT Family's most powerful battle-formationyet. featuring Tsuyama and Kawabata from the original AMT and Yoshida from Ruins. their crushingly acute freakout sound willpulverize the world's legions of wannabe psych groups.

SEIKAZOKU (Kawabata/Tsuyama/Yoshida)Formed in 1996. The expansive musicality of the group, which nonchalantly references classic prog and rock, ethnic music, jazz andcontemporary composition, is backed up the three members' impressivebackgrounds and the depth of their musical knowledge. Improvisedmusic for holy trinity heresy that runs the full gamut of ethnic and electric instruments, primitive stupidity, the suspicious stench ofmedieval alchemy, the raw power of early rock music, all leavenedwith a pinch of cosmic incoherency.

With the presence of “self”, “I” think, “I” ponder and therefore “I” exist. Modern people have become more and more obsessed with the conception of “self”, centering self feelings and benefits, thus they care less and less about others, which results from the characteristic of exclusiveness of “self”. It is virtually a golden opportunity to have Hong Kong artist Huang Renkui together with fifteen Macao artists from different media circles to create and perform in “My Absence-Group Creative Exhibition”. What will the world look like with self absence? We are looking forward to it.
