Profile
Hiroshi Sugimoto
Hiroshi Sugimoto was born in Tokyo in 1948. In 1970 he moved to Los Angeles and studied photography at the Art Center College of Design. He lives in New York and Tokyo. He is best known for his highly stylized photographic series of seascapes, movie theaters, natural history dioramas, waxworks and Buddhist sculptures. These series provoke fundamental questions about the relationship of photography and time, as well as exploring the mysterious and ineffable nature of reality.
In recent years, Sugimoto’s work has become increasingly concrete at the same time as it has become notably more abstract. It has broken out of, or beyond, photographic illusion to touch the moment of an ideal space rendered in photography. In his Architecture series (1997-2002), rather than photographing key modernist buildings to elucidate their lines and volumes, Sugimoto blurred the image in an effort to capture not the buildings themselves but mental images of them.
In September-October 2013, Sugimoto Bunraku was performing in Europe(Madrid, Rome, Paris), was successful.

About “THE END”

2013年11月12、13、15日、ジャン・コクトーとピカソ、サティがコラボレーションしたことで知られる名門パリ・シャトレ座でボーカロイド・オペラ「THE END」の海外初公演を大成功のうちに収めた渋谷慶一郎が、待望のピアノソロ・コンサートを行います。

コンサートは「Keiichiro Shibuya Playing THE END」と題し、「THE ENDの楽曲をピアノ・ソロで弾く」をメインコンセプトにしたものです。
他にも「SPEC」を初めとした近年の映画音楽、THE ENDと並ぶ最新作となる「ATAK019」、そして「for maria」からも演奏予定です。

Keiichiro Shibuya Playing THE END

About “THE END”

Keiichiro Shibuya will be performing a much awaited piano solo concert in Tokyo Spiral hall.
Shibuya recently returned from a very successful overseas performance of “THE END” which was held on November 12th, 13th, and 15th at Theatre du Chatelet, a renown theater where Jean Cocteau, Picasso, and Satie collaborated.

The concert is titled “Keiichiro Shibuya Playing THE END”, and its main concept is based on playing a piano solo of the musical compositions of THE END.
He will also be playing from recent movie soundtracks such as “SPEC”, and “ATAK019″ and “for maria”, his latest works in line with THE END.

Shibuya will be playing the piano surrounded by multichannel speakers that will be brought into the hall.
It will exceed the sound system and stereo image of a conventional piano concert.
The performances in Tokyo Spiral Hall on December 27th & 28th have different playlists and content.
The audience has been limited to 300 through thorough consideration of the acoustical condition of the hall.
This show will surely be an instant sell out.
