Minamo: Experimental Electronic Music from Japan
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Formed in 1999 by Keiichi Sugimoto and Tetsuro Yasunaga, Minamo has performed and collaborated with some of the most important artists in ambient electronic music, such as Taylor Deupree, Lawrence English, Microstoria, Oren Ambarchi, and Ikue Mori, among others. The artists in Minamo are staples for the respected independent 12K record label.
This event, hosted by percussion professor Steve Wilkes and sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development, includes a performance as well as a discussion of Minamo’s artistic process, which combines electronic and acoustic music at the intersection of composition and improvisation.
