Audiovisual project by Tokyo-born musician Tetsuji Ohno. Ohno began his music production career in the late 90s after spending the mid 90s as a DJ in and around Tokyo. Simultaneously he has been developing A/V works for live performances and advertising. His sound carries strong characteristic of his experiences in the house, techno, noise, and electronica genres.
He has been invited to music and media art festivals around the world such as MUTEK (Canada), Scopitone (France), HPL (Russia), and Sunscape (Matla). Additionally his exhibitions works have been awarded with prices such as FILE (Brazil).
Living in Japan, he continuously develops new projects that seek to organically connect human senses through integrated sound experiences in places such as National Museums, in artistic and commercial content productions.
Since the 90s Yamamoto has been utilizing video as a media art, especially as an extension to electronic music, thus approaching the field very different from the traditional movie perspective. With this unique approach he has presented numerous works in festivals both in Japan and abroad.
Most recently, his collaboration with Miraikan (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation) for the production of The Movements in 2014 became the trigger for his involvement in big data and science visualization. In his work Decommissioning Fukushima (2014) produced for NHK saw him challenging the visualization of time, while in Miraikan’s The Man from the 9 Dimensions he visualized scientific concepts like the superstring theory, resulting in a series of works outside the range of art/commercial.
Currently, he has been collaborating with the sound artist Mr. Tetsuji Ohno (Intercity-Express) for a variety of projects and the two of them gave a live performance at MUTEK 2014 in Montreal.
