After 3.11. Pray ? John Cage 《Sonatas and Interludes》

Tokyo Experimental Festival will be finally closed with the biggest night - John Cage All Night!
Ken'ichi Nakagawa, a passionate contemporary pianist challenges 70mins x 11 times performance of "Sonatas and Interludes", milestone of the Cage's piece for prepared piano through 24 hours. Toshi Ichiyanagi who used to work with John Cage plays piano along with the "alternating recitation" by Minoru Hatanaka & Yuji Numano as well as a treasured video, filmed in Cage's house by Takahiko Iimura. Takahiro Tomatsu gives "fighting bodies' session" with a jazz pianist, Yosuke Yamashita. And guitar solo by Yoshihide Otomo, a charismatic talent of sound and noise etc. Brilliant musicians and artists will offer concert, performance, talk, dance and installation through the 24 hours! You also have a time for "tuning your ear" while you walk from TWS Shibuya to TWS Aoyama and get ready for more intense performances. Do not miss the truly experimental time and space, coming and going between TWS Shibuya and TWS Aoyama!
