Nobutaka Shomura Nobutaka’s residency project

Nobutaka Shomura (dance/performance artist, electronic musician, media artist) focuses on reinterpretation of electronic music and live performances in terms of post digital media art in his recent research.  Although the artist dived into interactive sound programming at the start, he’d rather be enchanted by the potential of the physical feedback/interpretation in order to embody the relationship between the media and us.  Since most creative platforms of digital music tend to cause players‘ absence, the artist found that a physical/analog media, which represents timelessness, provides concrete interactions for composition and choreography.  In this residency, the artist will work on composing/choreographing with a metal sound object, which is constructed by raw and pure materials and remind audiences “out of cultural trend” aesthetics of electronic music and media art performance.
