Event Details



Aquiles Hadjis (Venezuela)
Based in Tokyo for the past decade, Aquiles Hadjis’ practice combines strategies from visual arts and improvisation to drive his performances, installations, and instrument building. Linking the idea of prototypes to sketching, he thinks of both as thought that has solidified only slightly, enough to do things it cannot do inside the mind, but still malleable enough to exist as a frame for conversations that beckon the unknown. Many of his works give voice to malfunctioning and unpredictable systems whose conversations he arranges and moderates.

He has performed and shown his work in the US, Japan, Germany, Austria, Venezuela, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong among other places.

赤い日ル女 Akaihirume
Akaihirume is a Japanese singer whose ear is always tuned to the world’s sounds, which she keeps as material in her shell.
As both an original songwriter and​ an improviser she has worked with artists of various styles, using her voice as material of choice.
​Akaihirume began a collaboration with an American composer Carl Stone in 2015 Tokyo, and their works have been performed in Asia and the United States.
In 2019, Carl Stone released his Album named Himalaya from Unseen Worlds, and the title track is the first recorded release from their collaboration. Akaihirume composed it for him with respect in 2016. The overall structure includes section for improvisation, and this version is recorded in Los Angeles, September 2017.
