FUJI|||||||||||TA + claire rousay

Wednesday, April 5
8:00pm

Ars Nova Workshop presents Japanese sound artist FUJI|||||||||||TA and experimental composer claire rousay in a double bill featuring two solo performances at Solar Myth on April 5, 2023.

claire rousay

claire rousay is based in San Antonio, Texas. Her music zeroes in on personal emotions and the minutiae of everyday life—voicemails, haptics, environmental recordings, stopwatches, whispers and conversations—exploding their significance. rousay has released music on a range of labels, most notably Astral Spirits, Second Editions, Longform Editions, and American Dreams, who in 2021 released a softer focus, a collaboration with visual artist Dani Toral. rousay’s music has received acclaim from NPR, which writes that rousay “enchants the ordinary,” and Pitchfork, which calls her music “quietly devastating.”

FUJI|||||||||||TA

FUJI|||||||||||TA, born Yosuke Fujita, is a Japanese sound artist who works at the juncture of electronic noise and natural phenomena. He has collaborated with many musicians, movement artists, and visual artists, including Yamantaka Eye of Boredoms, the legendary avant-gardist Akio Suzuki, the Open Reel Ensemble, and others. His music reflects his desire to discover previously unheard sounds, which has driven him to create a unique pipe organ playing sound synthesized from aquariums, and an installation work, “Cell,” that amplified the sounds of maggots buried in dirt.
