"suite for senses" is a performance work created for video, piano and three performers.
Visual expression has structural features in common with music. By extracting and recomposing them, Uto creates visual expressions that can be appreciated as if they were music listened to by the eyes.
Although reading a score is one way to listen to sounds through the eyes, Uto's interest is focused on spontaneous and inescapable feelings that are like visible things resonating directly in the mind.
Seeing suddenly something flying at you and rebounding in an empty screen, you would hear a sharp sound through sight. It will create feelings of tension, shock and exaltation.
This performance work is an attempt to produce a rich musical experience even in silence.
