Looking for sounds and structures improvising on my guitar, is something I love doing. To me this style of playing is a form of meditation.
SYSTEMIC_SYMBIOSIS investigates the effect of the performer on the meditative effect of music. Aiming to induce, amplify and sustain a meditative state, an interplay emerges between human performer and the system. Utilising electric guitar and live electronics, featuring Max/MSP, the artist communes with the system to project the internal.
To listen carefully is to become silent. Becoming silent is an ancient practice, This is becoming aware, Aware of oneself. Slow passages invite to listen, To hear the smallest changes. I find myself looking for Silence. This piece is part of my search.
Inspired by the many rows of bright white fluorescent lamps in Tokyo's high-rise office buildings, I decided to use my electric guitar in another way than I had been using it before. I used my guitar's pickups to explore sounds induced by various intensities of electromagnetic fields generated by fluorescent lamps. It resulted in this project, which is an improvised performance.
