OUTLANDS experimental music touring network present Enso Sone an original audio-visual collaboration between Japanese psych band Qujaku and UK visual artists IMPATV plus special guests group A perform a new AV set.
Enso Sone is an audio-visual collaboration between Japanese psych band Qujaku and UK visual artists IMPATV which explores ideas of duality - sound triggers light that in turn creates form. In Japanese Zen practice, the Enso symbol is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The sone is a unit of loudness, how loud a sound is perceived. The title Enso Sone expresses a freedom to create loudness, which marks the starting point for this collaboration which explores oneness, natural opposites and equilibrium, the spirit of harmonious cooperation, the visible and the invisible, absolute fullness in emptiness, simplicity, completeness, and endlessness. The resulting marriage of Qujaku’s music and IMPATV’s visuals unfurls into an all-encompassing display for the senses.
About the Artists
QUJAKU are a Japanese heavy psychedelic rock band based in Hamamatsu. Their dark and heavy psychedelia filled with rich distortion and feedback creates a unique decadent ambience which is beyond comparison. There is not only a brutality but also an ephemeral beauty behind it. Delicate yet strong, destructive guitar with feedback, repetitive rhythms, and deep, bellowing bass.
IMPATV is a collaborative video and stage production project from UK artists Isadora Darke and Jamie Robinson. Using new digital technologies and live mixing methods combined with costumes and stage design they produce immersive installations, music videos, art and music productions.
GROUP A's hyper electronic industrial music meets with Berlin based visual artist DEAD SLOW AHEAD for live A/V performances which feature geometry, strobe, and visual explorations.
