minoru sato -m/s + ASUNA
The collaboration works by them were began from 2004. The pieces have been mainly making by connecting two difference kinds of system as referenced by each other. One system is using air de-pressured organs by ASUNA and the other is using resonances by several glass tubes by Minoru. Their interest is focus on acoustic phenomena as sound waves – i.e. vibrations, reflections, resonances and fluctuations, they compose and perform those phenomena as audible experiences. In 2008, they invited artist Keisuke Oki to new project which was named Valve/Membrance. At Valve/Membrance,The whole system had been extended through a connecting air pressured route. That project was chosen one of finalists of Transmediale. After that, the collaboration have returned to working by minoru sato -m/s + ASUNA. Recently they have been working on new approach which is include a point of view of combination tones depending on any site-specific characters. “Giuseppe Tartini Entangled Sleng Teng”, on 7” released from Meeuw Muzak in 2019, may be regarded as a practice of that approach. The featuring of their collaboration is that is on reflecting any environmental character which a performed site has, and is in composition of acoustic present to be returned into the site itself as feedback system.
