Unpredictable, transcendental experimental sessions!
Musician Seiichi Yamamoto who in recent years has had an undeniable influence on experimental music in Japan, will curate a music program at South Hall, ROHM Theatre Kyoto. Yamamoto, a member of numerous bands including BOREDOMS and Omoide Hatoba has also been involved in Osaka‛s legendary live music venue Namba Bears since 1987. Over thirty years Namba Bears has produced many musicians and bands with unique personalities. The influence this has had remains strong in Kansai and extends beyond the music scene to artists of various genres.
This is a huge one-day-only session featuring musicians gathered by Yamamoto. There‛s no doubt that the content will reach the farthest poles of experimentation.
