THE AMPLIFIED ELEPHANTS WITH RYOKO AOKI
// HAGOROMO //
Please see a promotional video for the concert here:
Although isolated by COVID-19 and separated by the vast distance between Australia and Japan, this remarkable project brings together the timeless beauty of Ryoko Aoki – Noh singer – and the electronic sonic wonderland of The Amplified Elephants. Through a process of sophisticated online streaming, the Melbourne-based Elephants and Japan’s Aoki will translate the music of the Noh play “羽衣 -HAGOROMO-” into a cross-cultural expression of creative solidarity. The project features the Disruptive Critters interface created by Jonathan Duckworth, James Hullick and Ross Eldridge at RMIT University.
