Keiichiro Shibuya

Compositeur et musicien électronique et acoustique, Keiichiro Shibuya crée une œuvre prolifique et protéiforme, où se mêlent haute technologie et poésie mélancolique. Son esthétique fantomatique ouvre de manière très contemporaine sur un animisme numérique.

Après la Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, il a créé en 2002 le label ATAK, collectif d’artistes qui intervient dans le champ du design et de la technologie web, etc. Il a composé des musiques de film, comme pour Memories of Origins de Hiroshi Sugimoto en 2012, et a conçu le premier opéra virtuel, The End, mis en scène au Théâtre du Châtelet.

C’est lors de sa résidence au Pavillon Neuflize OBC du Palais de Tokyo que Keiichiro a fait la rencontre de Jérémie Belingard et de Justine Emard. Tous les trois collaborant sur The Way of the Rabbit, laquelle va s’étendre pour le CosmoGarden d’Aki Kuroda auquel ils seront conviés. Ces différentes rencontres ont fait nourrir entre eux une idée de spectacle/performance mêlant leurs trois disciplines.
