A wild and witty partnership that breaks conventions, performed with children

Part of a new kids’ project at Kyoto Experiment, the music for this performance is created with children by voice performer and composer Tomomi Adachi. Based in Berlin, Adachi’s wide-ranging output includes improvisational performances, self-made instruments, and sound poetry. At a preview workshop he will use a musical score made from shapes in order to elicit freer sounds.

Working with Adachi is contact Gonzo, the performance group whose appearance at the last Kyoto Experiment was at the unconventional venue of Nishikyogoku Stadium with the girls alternative rock band Nisennenmondai.

Their bodies crashing violently into each other, contact Gonzo showcased a lithe class of physical performance. While both Adachi and contact Gonzo have pursued unique styles of performance unrestrained by conventions, the basic impulse of their creativity remains an extension of children’s playfulness.

For their first collaboration, contact Gonzo and Adachi are joined by the young workshop participants to create an utterly new kind of soundscape.
