This is to be seen and heard: sparkling will be guaranteed when performance artist and musician Akemi Takeya once again will draw on her passion for both precisely composed as well as wildly imaginative scores, thereby creating new images of body and sound. Tapped/Untapped is a (re)mix of the history of western and eastern art and sounds. In the first part, Takeya will „tap“ the Japanese string instrument Shamisen. In the second part she performs within this live-recorded sound architecture. We are curious to see what new and potentially provoking contextures of body and sound will emerge.
