Review: New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival 2018: Excellence

"The transparency of imagination at work produced particularly successful music. Aine E. Nakamura’s six stories, performed by Nakamura herself, singing and playing the sanshin, and cellist Madeleine Shapiro is a headily complex and interesting work. Accompanied by fixed media, Nakamura and Shapiro both sing and speak while playing their instruments both ‘traditionally’ and ‘non-traditionally,’ comparing experiences of Manhattan and Japan. Music and voices, in dialogue and chant, summon up images of both American and Asian worlds; the two artists, side by side, are priestesses and creators, women comparing stories and memories, two beings simultaneously separate and interconnected."

- Nature in Music and Storytelling -

...Listening to Nature was a collaborative project of music and storytelling (movie and poem) on the theme, nature. I aimed not only for musical fusion but conceptual fusion between Yaeyama*i music and traditional culture, and contemporary art and music. I wanted to bring the value of nature veneration to NY city for the purpose of making a proposal of a sustainable society. People in Yaeyama and surrounding Ryukyu islands*ii have lived with the nature and worshiped it through festivals, rituals, dance and music. Folk traditional music and even shin-minyo*iii are based on this value in the area...[more]

"Throughout Robert Rauschenberg’s six-decade career, he moved freely between the worlds of visual art and avant-garde music. Beginning in the early 1950s, Rauschenberg worked closely with the composers and performers associated with the New York School, including such pioneering experimental figures as Earle Brown, John Cage, Morton Feldman, David Tudor, and Christian Wolff..."

- Listening To Nature -

...Okinawa and Yaeyama islands are located southwest of Japan’s main island, northeast of Taiwan in between East China Sea and Philippine Sea. They are current Okinawa prefecture of Japan along with Miyako islands.
The music here is based on and strongly linked to idea and concepts that exist in this area, Nirakanai (world of gods and ancestors), Utaki (sacred places), nature worship.
Parts of the aspects of the songs of islands are sacred festivals in the area...[more]
