This event has ended.

Taishi Kamiya creates musical performances using a soprano sax, self-made devices, and a laptop, and also produces intricate sound and installation works that retain the original spontaneity of sound. Focusing on movement, this exhibition, his first solo show at Waitingroom, presents new works which bring a focus to “movement” in the tackling the question of “where does sound come from?” Here he examines the relation between movement and sound, tracing the origin of noise to the vibrations of particles and objects and highlighting the ability of this interaction to move beyond the prediction of the audience and the control of the artist. As the title suggests moire is a form of interference when two layers of sound or light come into contact with each other, and here Kamiya interprets this upon a meta-level to draw out moire from the dynamics of space.
