HUMAIN TROP HUMAIN [JOURNÉE THÉMATIQUE]

Robots conférenciers, poètes androïdes et réfrigérateurs ventriloques peupleront cette journée thématique qui vise à approfondir la question de l’humain, présente en filigrane dans les projets de divers créateurs du Bord des mondes. Les transformations génétiques, les performances techniques et technologiques, mais aussi le contexte économique global et son rapport à la productivité remettent en cause la division communément admise entre le naturel et l’artificiel, l’organique et le mécanique et questionnent la nature humaine en ce qu’elle devient artificiellement reproductible. L’identité, le rapport à l’objet et la relativité de l’anthropocentrisme seront abordés à travers une série de conférences, de performances et d’un programme vidéo pensés pour l’occasion.
Les conférences auront lieu en anglais.

Robots, androids and ventriloquists refrigerators this theme that aims to deepen the question of the human, this watermark in projects of various creators of the Edge of the Worlds. Genetic transformations, technical and technological performance, but also the overall economic environment and its relation to the productivity challenge the commonly accepted division between the natural and the artificial, the organic and the mechanical and question human nature in it becomes artificially reproducible. The identity, to the object and the relativity of anthropocentrism will be addressed through a series of lectures, performances and a video program designed for the occasion.

The lectures will be in English.

Concept
The concert is monitoring device. The music is motioned by audience.

Three cameras capturing images of the movements of his hands and fingers as they dance around on the keys, swaying about, filled with emotion and expression, and projactioned. Thereby, dividing / enlarged played are projection.

This secret concert composed by piano solo, piano and computer duo, such as improvisation, and close distance of the audience and the performer than yesteryear salon, so experience except the composer of the brain.

In addition, it is also a prospectus of concerts presenting the fluctuation of the so-called boundary such as composer and musical performance, pop and experimental, acoustic and technology, to listen and be viewed.

The contents of which may be said tthe best of Keiichiro Shibuya. Its contents, including the new tune by computer and piano, movie number he worked, piano solo of “for maria”, vocaloid Opera “THE END” which played on the piano instead of Hatsune Miku.

It is a concerning reports of the beautiful progressive music which made by mobilization advanced technology.

The concert shows in front of the screen that the picture of the production process is carried away is in extreme close up the real sentiment of performance as well as those momentary flashes where true music is born.

This attempt would be also felt strongly something that installation or a performance as the different side of the concert.

New Release
ATAK021 Massive Life Flow(DVD)

Keiichiro Shibuya
release:
2014-09-11 (ATAK Web Shop only)

ATAK021 – ATAK Web Shop
※This DVD is limited production.

Spanning 10 days, from 17 April to 26, 2011, Keiichiro Shibuya produced a piece called ‘Massive Life Flow’ at koko gallery in Ebisu, Tokyo, during an open studio event. After Shibuya dragged his piano and computer into the gallery, onlookers were free to watch and listen in on him composing and playing. The experiment gathered a lot of attention, as it was broadcast live on the Internet via a surveillance-like camera. The 82-minute recording of the performance features a total of 18 songs, including improvisations, intimate renditions of well known and unreleased works, never before performed live and unavailable on CD, as well as footage of Shibuya composing and close-ups of his piano play. Furthermore, the DVD is a document of Shibuya’s collaboration with up and coming creators, like Shohei Shigematsu (architect), Kaie Murakami (art director) and Shin Suzuki (photographer).

In April 2011, I engaged myself into a peculiar project that could be described as a ten-day open studio music production, defying the mood of self-restraint that permeated society after the 3/11 Tohoku Earthquake.
During this project, titled ‘Massive Life Flow’, I crammed a piano and a computer into a gallery, with people coming and going, free to have a look and listen in on me silently composing, performing or writing e-mails. It turned out that the experiment had impacted me deeply. Only a fine line remained between the personal and the public, and things outside my own control inevitably inverted the two. Similar to the theme of life and death, we find ourselves utterly powerless facing this inevitability. Also, these performances differed greatly from usual concerts and recordings. Playing music in order to explore, experiment and verify, is an irreversibly personal moment, in the sense that you are playing for no one but yourself. It comes close to real freedom. I thought about how great it would be to someday be able to actually play a concert in that same way, and as it turned out, someday I actually would. However, I decided before that as far as my work goes, I would hand it down as a personal record, true to life and with nothing to hide. Finally, even after three years, I’m still surprised at how interesting this recording event has been.
Keiichiro Shibuya – August 25, 2014

‘Massive Life Flow’, described by Keiichiro Shibuya himself as a “personal moment of freedom”, shows in extreme close up the real sentiment of performance as well as those momentary flashes where true music is born, by capturing images of “the movements of his hands and fingers as they dance around on the keys, swaying about, filled with emotion and expression”. Shot from multiple angles and projected in real time inside the gallery, the piece shows us the relationship between watching and being watched.
