AMB/Ambient as a Medium
This event has ended.
Proposed in the late 1970s by Brian Eno, ambient music has never stopped its expansion in the world of art music since its recognition as a form of drone music—a genre of music with the gradient scales. With occasional emergence of milestone-figures such as The KLF and Aphex Twin, its journey counts up to approximately 40 years, if not 100 years counting music composed by Eric Satie, whom Eno himself regards as its “forefather.” In the process, “ambient” has become more than an adjective and found itself also as a noun, gradually evolving from a signifier of the genre into a single concept. This exhibition showcases three artists embodying such aspects of ambient: Satoshi Otsuka, Hiroshi Takizawa, and Nori Hattori. During the exhibition, there will be a multi-dimensional installation with original soundtracks created solely for this show by Hair Stylistics (a.k.a. Masaya Nakahara).
