Nobuo Kubota (Lives in Toronto, Canada)
Nobuo Kubota was born in Vancouver, B.C. in 1932. Much of his work is involved with installations, music, sound and other multi media processes. In the early 80′s Kubota was introduced to sound poetry by the legendary Four Horsemen. His vocal work is grounded in sound poetry, free jazz improvisation and Buddhist chanting. He has been performing as a solo vocalist locally and in Europe for 25 years. As an extension to his vocal work, he also works with visual sound poetry, exploring the strategy of “intermedia”. His recent work, “new calligraphy,” is involved with the writing of sonic sound scores. Currently, he is working on sound and music performances, compositions and videos. In 2010 Kuubota received a Governor General Award for his contribution to the Visual Arts.
