Installation of "Catchy" in progress, Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon -- opening 17 June 2017 with a performance by Seijiro Murayama + Thomas Brinkmann 6-8PM. "In a first for the artist, Gordon has composed a pop song in Los Angeles, in collaboration with a group of young industry professionals. This song is diffused throughout Empty Gallery’s two floors by a multi-channel speaker system which Gordon has used to fragment the composition into its component parts - localizing different elements of the song in specific regions of the space. This soundscape is further sculpted and filtered through Gordon’s physical interventions in the gallery, which take the form of a maze of sound-absorbing pneumatic structures on the first floor and a series of hybrid sound blanket-tapestries on the lower floor. The space of the gallery thus becomes an inversion of the recording studio, in which the seamless surface of pop production is ruptured into its component parts in a deconstruction which is at once critical and playful." #emptygallery#seijiromurayama#thomasbrinkmann#jacquelinekiyomigordon#installation#art#blackcube#opening#hk#hkart
Seijiro Murayama & Thomas Brinkmann will perform at Empty Gallery for the exhibition opening of Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon: Catchy -- 17 June 2017, 6-8PM | "Thomas Brinkmann is a German producer of experimental minimal techno music. He began experimenting with records in the early eighties and released re-workings of material by fellow artists Mike Ink and Richie Hawtin in the second half of the 1990s. Brinkmann later founded the Ernst record label and introduced his own productions on a series of 12" records taking their titles from female names. He has also produced for labels such as Traum Schallplatten, Raster-Noton and Mute Records" | "Percussionist Seijiro Murayama started performing improvised music in 1972, under some influence of Vinko Globokar and musicologist Fumio Koizumi. After graduating from Tokyo University in Urdu Studies he toured the USA with Keiji Haino as part of the seminal psychedelic band Fushitsusha. Returning to Japan after a period in NYC he continued playing drums and electronics in K.K. Null‘s noise/rock band A.N.P. (Absolut Null Punkt), while further exploring free improvisation. A relocation to France in 1999 led to collaborations that extended into dance, theatre and performance as well as ongoing partnerships with musicians Jean-Luc Guionnet, Eric Cordier, Michel Doneda, Mattin, Lionel Marchetti, among many others. After over a decade in Europe he relocated back to Japan in 2013." #emptygallery#seijiromurayama#thomasbrinkmann#music#hk#hkart#experimentalmusic#performance#percussion#techno#musicians
