Test Tone present vol. 33:
High Impact Movement Night! Sonic Seizure Extravaganza!
出演: 謹成祝花 (sound / dance / feedback / performance)、Ome Zombie (安藤暁彦 +/恵美伸子) featuring Cleaning Lady (saxophone / no-input mixing board) from Australia、Eli (中村賢治/曽根宏介/高橋宏司)、Death-logic: Analogic (坂本拓也 / 中村修/大城真) + DEATHANOVA (進揚一郎 from Optrum)


謹成祝花を見たことのある人なら、彼女の緊迫感のあるパフォーマンスは忘れられないだろう。マイクのフィードバック、ボーカルテクニック、鳴り響くシンバル、マルチエフェクター、モダンダンスのエロティックな要素などを織り交ぜながら、祝花のパフォーマンスは官能的で暗く、挑戦的で魅惑的。国外でも注目を集め、最近はチェコのAlternativa FestivalやフランスのTheatre de Nimesの主催によるThe Japanese Experienceでもでパフォーマンスを披露した。そしてルーマニアで来春行われる第16回Sibiu International Theatre Festivalにも招待された。自身の表現手段を「溶けるような空間と時間を作り出す即興音とダンス」と描写し、「自分の踊りは、自分の音を踊らないと、どうしようもないんだよ。」

Ome Zombie + Cleaning Lady (オーストラリア)
Ome Zombieは、サックス安藤暁彦(Kuruu Crew)、ドラマー 恵美伸子(Tsurabami)によるインプロヴィゼイションデュオ。ハードコア、ノイズロック、フリージャズ、ローファイサイケデリアなどの未開拓なジャンルを通り抜け、美しく織りなされたハーモニーの谷間を通りぬけて泥の山やでこぼこに突き当たる。ライブには毎回デュオとゲストミュージシャンを迎え、今回はCleaning Ladyとして知られるオーストラリアのStephen Richardsがサックスとミキシングボードで登場し、ノイズを提供する。今回は2つのヘビーなユニットのバトルを以外な場所で見れる数少ないチャンス。


Death-logic: Analogic + DEATHANOVA
目まぐるしいビジュアルと強烈なドラミングを取り入れた表現でDeath-logicはまさしくその名前から想像できるようなグループ。オーディオビジュアルリサーチユニットのAnalogic(坂本拓也 + 中村修 + 大城真)とOptrumのダイナマイトドラマー進揚一郎の強烈コラボ。豊富なビジュアルと確かな音楽的才能のコンビネーションは何度でも見る価値あり。

Artist Information:
Chikanari Shukuka
Ask anyone who has seen her perform and chances are, they will remember Chikanari Shukuka in all of her jaw-dropping instensity. Working with microphone feedback, extended vocal techniques, clanging cymbals, multi-effectors, and erotic elements of modern dance, Shukuka's performances are at once sensual and dark, challenging and captivating.
Gaining attention internationally, she recently performed at Alternativa Festival in the Czech Republic and at 'The Japanese Experience', hosted by Theatre de Nimes in France. She has also been invited to perform at the 16th edition of Sibiu Internation Theatre Festival in Romania next spring.
While describing her method of expression as "improvised sound and dance creating melted space and time," she adds, "When I dance, I dance to my sound. What else to do?"

Ome Zombie
(Akihiko Ando + Emi Nobuko)
Ome Zombie is the tumultuous hell-child of mercurial saxophonist Akihiko Ando (Kuruu Crew) and shambolic drummer Emi Nobuko (Tsurabami). Traversing the unpaved musical landscape of hardcore, noise-rock, free jazz, and lo-fi psychedelia, Ome Zombie crashes into mountains of sludge, stumbles through swamps of viscous drone, and twists through valleys of beautifully tangled harmonies.
Every performance features the duo with a guest musician in tow, and this time around, Australian multi-tasker Stephen Richards aka Cleaning Lady will provide the necessary skronk and splatter as he alternates between saxophone and no-input mixing board.
A rare chance to see two heavy units battle it out on (relatively) foreign soil.

Cleaning Lady
(saxophone / no-input mixing board) from Australia

(Kenji 'Noise' Nakamura + Kousuke Sone + Hiroshi Takahashi)
Taking the definition of free jazz to a whole new level, Eli will be sure to offend most music purists. But for those who like their jazz scattered with artillery fire, clusterbombs and landmines, this saxophone trio will quench the most tilted depths of your soul. Frontman and tireless promoter of the groundbreaking 'Black & Gold' event, Kenji 'Noise' Nakamura is well-known for his napalm-laced sax improvisations (and overall punk-ass attitude). With Kousuke Sone on bass and the grindcore drumming of Hiroshi Takahashi, Eli will both awaken and devastate your senses, leaving you excited (and maybe a bit frightened) about the future of free jazz.

Analogic (Takuya Sakamoto + Osamu Nakamura + Shin Oshiro)
+ DEATHANOVA (Yoichiro Shin from Optrum)
With a multi-faceted presentation mixing epileptic visuals with furious drumming, Deathalogic might just live up to their name. A mad collaboration between audiovisual research unit Analogic (Takuya Sakamoto + Osamu Nakamura + Shin Oshiro) and Optrum's frenetic drummer Yoichiro Shin, the sensory experience might be likened to watching that Pikachu episode that sent a number of children into convulsive seizures.
Total visual overload matched with deft musicianship to deliver an experience that is difficult to capture in one sitting. Seconds anyone?
