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.
Funders: The Toyota Foundation, Interactive Arts and Disability: Creative Rehabilitation and Activity for Individuals with a Disability (Representative: Shigenori Mochizuki); Australia Japan Foundation. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
