A music installation for video, miniature percussion, violin and
harp taking place in far west Japan.
Yakumo Honjin is inspired by a 280 year old samurai hotel located on Lake Shinji. The work has evolved from a creative development residency which took place in the samurai hotel in 2007. The result is a series of performances and projection based installation presented at Karakoro Art Studio in Matsue exploring the concept of 'oku' - or hidden - a theory which informs traditional architecture, garden design and music.
Instrumentation: Violin, harp, percussion (2 players).
Duration: 60 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by Aphids in association with Sphere (Japan)
- Influenced by: Japanese culture
