¡INTERVIEW & PICK UP ARTIST
Otomo Yoshihidefs Year-end 4DAYS with 8 Consecutive Concerts:
gConstellations of Junksh



Whatever I think of, it must be improvisation after all. At the Sapporo International Art Festival 2017, I worked as a director under the theme of gConstellations of Junksh. The underlying theme of this art festival was also gImprovisationh. Usually, in a public project like an art festival which has its roots in art exhibitions, it is necessary to make an overall plan in details to receive approval from the organization, before putting it in execution. Normally, there is no chance to program improvisation in the plan.h But if we dare to put the element of improvisation in there, how it will turn out? Then actually, I came up with a boldly experimental idea to direct an art festival featuring improvisation as a main focus, not just as an element. At an art festival, something unexpected is happening at some spot every day. Instead of just following on the track that the curator set up in advance, what if each exhibition radically changes into something else day by day? But on reflection, these things are happening here at the Shinjuku Pit Inn everyday as a matter of course.

Now, after having finished the Sapporo festival followed by our two month tour to Central and South America, I am coming back to the Shinjuku Pit Inn again for the first time in a while. I will play freely and heartily with my favorite musicians this year again.

We will present a wide range of my projects over four days, including ONJQ which is starting its activities after an interval of 13 years; Junji Hirose + Otomo Yoshihide DUO reunited after an interval of 27 years; Orquesta Nudge!, a run-up unit for our brand new project (we cannot publicity announce yet) and Nudge! + Otomo Yoshihide; Sachiko Mfs OPEN GATE which presented a unique way of expressing something between music and art at the Sapporo International Art Festival 2017 and the Aichi Triennale; and Otomo Yoshihide Special Band.

The theme of this 4DAYS is eConstellations of Junksf, the same theme as that of the Sapporo International Art Festival 2017. What kind of surprises will happen in these evolving music? Donft miss!
