Keiji Haino (JP)
Carl Stone (US/JP)
Nyokabi Kariuki (KE)

Keiji Haino is one of the most iconic musicians of the modern age. With five decades of music making behind him, he continues to push the boundaries of sound and song, fuelled by his utterly profound and effectual performances that span improvisation, dark blues, noise and psychedelic music. This is a rare glimpse of a truly legendary figure.

Acclaimed American artist Carl Stone has similarly set the stage for generations of electronic musicians fascinated with the potentials of sampling, modulation and transformation made possible by computer based applications. His music subsumes the melodic heart used in popular musics and reworks it into a rhythmic and textured sound mass that brings to mind minimalist traditions.

Kenyan sound artist Nyokabi Kariuki is responsible for a growing body of work that focused around the possibilities of voice, electronics and contemporary composition. She is part of an emergent generation of eclectic sound explorers, expanding pathways into zones of experimental and contemporary sonic traditions.

PRESENTED BY THE SUBSTATION AND ROOM40

Eiko Ishibashi I Jim O’Rourke | Chihei Hatakeyama

Japan’s music communities are as diverse as they are rich. Electronic music, and its connection to film composition and the avant-garde, has played a central role in 20th and 21st century music from Japan and this evening celebrates those connections.


Eiko Ishibashi is perhaps best known for her work in film, with her score for Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car being widely praised and nominated for numerous awards. Her solo works, which operate at the nexus of electronic and acoustic music, are buoyant zones where melody and texture are equally valued and explored.

Long time Japanese resident Jim O’Rourke delivers his first ever Australian solo performance. His resume spans three decades and ties together highly influential works as a songwriter, producer and composer. For his performance O’Rourke offers a dynamic and spatial concert of his trademark electronic music. Delivered utilising an octophonic speaker set-up, this work is wholly immersive and compelling in its approach.


Chihei Hatakeyama creates some of the most consuming ambient music to be heard today. His albums, which draw together his interest in the guitar as a sound source, environmental sound fields and cavernous spaces, maintain a deep sense of harmony. His music is oceanic in its form, rolling ever onward towards our shore.
