"Percussion Musicking" is our journey in exploring what percussion performance can be. Through a process of rethinking the relationship between music making and space/site that includes to performer's movement in space, the spatialisation of sound, and the connection between this performance to its location, Tokyo. This concert features an interplay of light, object and sound in a designed performance environment. This 40-minute concert is carried out as a semi-structured improvisation by the duo playing found objects, musical instruments, designed electronic sound objects, live sampling and sound material recorded during our visit.
