New York-based artist and composer Aki Onda will present a multi-media performance exploring the interplay between acoustic, architectural, and emotional relationships within the space. Performing with various types of lightning equipment, mirrors, rubber strings, glass containers, and analogue audio equipment, Onda arranges and rearranges the tools and objects, composing the visual and aural as a total environment.

This event is part of a series at the intersection of music and performance, organized by Rosario Güiraldes, Assistant Curator.

Aki Onda is an artist and composer based in New York. He is particularly known for his “Cassette Memories” — works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by using the cassette Walkman over a span of last three decades. He creates compositions, performances, and visual artworks from those sound memories. Onda often performs in interdisciplinary fields and collaborates with filmmakers, visual artists, and choreographers, including Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow, Raha Raissnia, Takashi Makino, Akio Suzuki, and Takao Kawaguchi. Onda’s work has been presented by numerous institutions internationally such as MoMA, MoMA PS1, The Kitchen, REDCAT, Time-Based Art Festival, documenta 14, Pompidou Center, Louve Museum, Palais de Tokyo, and Bozar.

This program is made possible by Material for the Arts, a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
