"just the strings"

Mori Hiroaki, Manabe Yuichirou, lux diffusion


"Just the Strings" welcomed two guest guitar players from Nagasaki, and was a night dedicated to just that- six strings. Hiroaki Mori and Yuichiro Manabe both are involved with an intricate finger-picking style a la Isato Nakamura and other acoustic guitar instrumentalists in that genre. Manabe was Mr. Mori’s student at the time, and they had lessons at Mr. Mori’s home at a small Shinto shrine. Mori played several songs from his self-released albums, and his large sound filled the room nicely. Lux diffusion debuted some new songs, and used looping effects to play along with his own backing parts. A closing improvisation was a chance for all three players to get together and share licks and just have fun.

This exhibition was produced by "P-Factory" from the U.S.
P-Factory is David Dilworth, Aya Kawaguchi, Jacob Lunderby, Andy Messerschmidt and Ryuta Nagashima. It consists of contemporary painters from California, Minnesota and Hawaii.
" We as a group are trying to investigate the new possibility and direction of a human consciousness/awareness through a production of paintings, which rage from layering, pattern works, labor insensitivity, mythology, urban lifestyle, etc... We see painting as a way to reconnect with our cultural and philosophical past, thus allowing us to build a truly meaningful future".

"one against 1"

Atsushi Suzuki / Kappa



one against series
This is a series of events planned to be held at art space tetra starting from June 12th 2004. The basic concept is for an artist and musician to appear at the same time in the same space on the 1st floor of artspace tetra. Within a specified time, a live music performance and the creation of an artwork will occur live before a paying audience. The finished artwork will then be exhibited at tetra for a period thereafter. One of the aims of the series is to make public the actual making/execution of an artwork and or music performance. Artists and musicians will set up/souncheck before the audience. The artists/musicians may collaborate or they may totally ignore each other. All space is open and no space is to be relegated prior. The audience will see the physical completion of an artwork.
