Screen playing a video


Usaginingen (Shin and Emi Hirai) (Japan/Berlin)

NEoN is thrilled to bring to Dundee Japanese audio-visual performance duo Usaginingen
(Shin and Emi Hirai) based in Berlin, Germany for a night of live electronic music, audiovisuals and kinetics. They play a self-made analogue visual machine called TA-CO and a music instrument called Shibaki. The TA-CO has a camera, a layered animation table, rotating drum, water-basins, coloured ink, beads, mirrors, prisms and handcrafts. The Music instrument SHIBAKI is a kind of percussion kit, connected to a MIDI controller and to a string instrument. These are played together to produce surprising real-time visuals soundtracked by a live percussion score.
