Otomo Yoshihide Music(s), a film by Guillaume Dero

Wednesday 13 November 2013, 17:30 to 20:00
Free

A screening and discussion around the work of Otomo Yoshihide, one of the key figures in Japanese experimental music.

Otomo Yoshihide has long been one of the most dynamic forces in Japanese experimental music. In 1990, he founded the mythic group “Ground Zero” produced by John Zorn. This film includes solo performances on turntables and guitar, as well as his New Jazz Ensemble. The subsequent discussion will explore Otomo's work, and the wider issues of stylistic diversity and contradiction in improvised music.
