Today's experiment :
The ice cube as timer in the Sauna.
(In big shopping mall sento
w/ electric bath, high and big shower, massage water jet, ice and fire.. but no soap for free nor any Yakuza - maybe one light Sumo.)

 

depression in style


We need to apologize for the serious lack of content and media updates these last days - we performed in Omi Achima for a marvellously quiet session in the dark garden of a very old shrine, then for/with children during a serious Warabimochi Party organized by Phirip (see Mehdi's pics), and today, in the crazy shaped buildings of the Yoro Tenmei Hantenchi Park (we could have played just anywhere but a huge thunderstorm forced us into finding proper sheltering places - Davide and I played a nice droning piece, then organized an anti-rain demonstration outside with two very loud megaphones and even got some followers in the audience). Again, vids and sounds are being prepared for full archive experience, and the upload problem shall be solved soon enough as we're in Iamas again and there is wifi network even in our tatami dormitories.

le petit lavabo


yesterday's performance was in my opinion the most satisfying performance we did. the shrine where we performed had great sounds to offer (bells, wells, sinks, insects),and we had found a really good and inspiring spot for the performance ( some kind of mini-side-temple with small stone cows statues). we played for maybe 25 minutes, surrounded by the suzumoshis singing with us, the temple people didn't seem to be too angry (this was a guerilla no permission performance) and the thunder and rain arrived just at the end of the show, as intended. it's the first time i can listen to my solo track (we all record our personal/private direct output and the result is very very different from what we hear when we are play together, obviously) and i think it's ok. it's hard for me to think of the patch as of a solo instrument. and anyway i don't like to play solo otherwise because i find it boring.
my personal pick.

unfortunately the minidisc only recorded the first 6 minutes... :-(

OMIHACHIMAN























Small city with very nice people. We played portable PA with the Semi in a nice temple, then we joined the Walabi mochi workshop by Phirip that took place in an "art brut" galery and performed a second time portable PA.
Thank you Hitomi for giving me this cute T.shirt.
