Japanese Innovators Pioneers in Experimental Sounds

A series of gigs featuring artists from Japanese underground scenes responsible for genre-defining music over the past 40 years.

From the ground breaking electronics of Yellow Magic Orchestra to the sonic arts of Ryoji Ikeda and quirky Pop of Mariah, these are artists that changed the face of music as we know it. Yet it isn’t culturally defining moments in American music, but Japanese underground scenes from which they’ve emerged.
