“Turtle, wind, movement of slug..
The body is made up of a tube.
Our human body is made up like a tube.
Capture the body of a tube. Is it possible to create changes of breath / moisture / temperature into sound with a glass tube?”
Resident artist Takako Minekawa is interested in the way tubes unite the human body and sound. Join us in a presentation and conversation with the Japanese sound and performance artist known for her musical experimentations most recently with Dustin Wong and seminal artist Ryuichi Sakamoto. Minekawa performs at PAM on June 29 & 30.
