Suzueri (Elico Suzuki) is a Tokyo-based sound artist and improviser. She creates performance and installations with handmade devices, instruments, prepared piano and voice, exploring methods of performing them in the most roundabout ways. Past exhibitions includes Emergencies (NTT ICC, 2008) and Web-based exhibition (Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, 2008) and she released five albums, including a quartet with Makoto Oshiro,Tetuzi Akiyama and Roger Turner [Live at ftarri] (Ftarri Meenna 2015).
Makoto Oshiro is a Tokyo-based performer and artist. His primary medium is sound, but he also combines other elements including light, electricity and the movement of objects. In live performances, he uses self-made tools and instruments based on electronic devices, everyday materials, and junk. His installation work handles sound as a physical and auditory phenomenon, and focuses on characteristics such as vibration and interference. He released his first solo CD Phenomenal World on Japanese label Hitorri.
Lee Patterson – By using sound recording as a form of ear training, Patterson has devised and performs with a selection of amplified devices and processes. Whether working live with amplification or recording within an environment, he has pioneered a range of methods to produce or uncover complex sound in unexpected places. From rock chalk to springs, from burning nuts to vibrating metal, he eavesdrops upon and makes a novelty of playing objects and situations otherwise considered mute. His collaborators have included some of todays’ most respected experimental musicians and filmmakers such as Mika Vainio, Jennifer Walshe, Vanessa Rossetto, David Toop, Rhodri Davies and John Butcher, Greg Pope, Benedict Drew, Luke Fowler, Lucio Capece, Rie Nakajima, Angharad Davies, Phil Durrant, Keith Rowe, John Tilbury, Xavier Charles and Tetsuya Umeda. His works have featured on UK TV, BBC Radios 3, 4 and 6, Resonance FM and on radio stations worldwide. He lives and works in Prestwich, Manchester, UK.
