Born in Tokyo 1971, studied musicology at the Kunitachi College of Music, graduating in 1996. During this period he began to play the electronic pieces by John Cage and his own sound performances. Since then he has been creating sound performances, installations and videos. In 2003 Morimoto moved to Berlin, has performed and exhibited in many international festivals including transmediale in Berlin, Experimental Music Festival in Munich. He is interested in the uncertain acoustic appearances between usual objects, for example water and stones, and the technical medium.
He will be performing ‘Tycho’, which stands for feedback system, contact microphone and pitch/time shifting. Tycho Brahe was a Danish astronomer known for his discovery of a supernova in the Cassiopeia constellation in 1572 that was so bright it was even visible during the day.
With their performance ‘Reconstruction of the Feedback Ink Bar’, Jochen Arbeit and Hopek Quirin will undertake, by a kind of sonic archaeology, a restoration of the infamous, and now defunct Vancouver Bar of the 80’s. Jochen Arbeit plays guitar and effects; Hopek Quirin plays bass, effects and microcassettes.
Kim Cascone will be performing his unique “Dark Stations” piece at Emitter Micro 2013. “Dark Stations” is a forty-two minute work utilizing Schumann resonances, spricom frequencies, binaural and monaural beat frequencies and spatial effects to induce an altered state in the listener. The event’s structure is derived from the Fibonacci series.
The audience sits in the center of the triangle and is invited to meditate during the event.
“Dark Stations” is an acoustic mirror, a reflecting pool bringing the audience’s unconscious to the surface through the technique of entrainment, allowing them to project onto the sonic gauze. “Dark Stations” could be likened to a scrying mirror into which the viewers unconscious is projected then reflected back to them.
Kim Cascone will perform on the last day of the festival, May 11th, at Ausland.
