This workshop gives an intimate look into the unique practice of Tetsuya Umeda, building sounds from everyday objects like tins, nets, stove and rice. Simple processes lead to unexpected sounds. Participants will experiment with the idea of “Narikama”, an ancient Japanese ritual performed for 500 years.

Tetusya Umeda produces installations that are inspired by existing elements found in the environment and circumstances surrounding the exhibition space including its architectural structure. He has produced numerous site-specific works based on the context of both urban spaces and the natural environment. He makes performance works including tours inviting the audience to unfamiliar places, or stage works focusing on functions found in theaters etc. He is internationally renowned as a leading artist in the field of sound art.
