NTS Parallel Visions #10

The uncompromising artistic vision of ∈Y∋ is kaleidoscopic and chaotic. Perhaps best known for his work leading avant-noise outfit BOREDOMS, Yamantaka Eye has become a staunch figurehead in the experimental Japanese music scene since the ’80s. Working under countless aliases and with a variety of ensembles, he’s performed and recorded with everyone from Sonic Youth to Nam June Paik.

Solidifying his reputation as both a solo artist and sometime DJ, ∈Y∋ launched a psychedelic radio residency with NTS Radio last year, whilst a recent solo performance at Fiji Rock shocked listeners through its sheer digital chaos. This continues his longstanding penchant for the creatively destructive: in 1985, performing with noise rock group Hanatarash at Tokyo Superloft, a young Yamantanka Eye arrived on stage driving a bulldozer. He eventually knocked a hole in the wall.

VJing for ∈Y∋ will be Yusuke Murakami. Murakami is a visual artist based in London. For this event, he integrates AI-generated movies into his audio-interactive visuals.
