An audio document of Haco's Sound Bugscope workshop at Divadlo 29, Pardubice (www.divadlo29.cz
) on June 2, 2018.
Sound Bugscope is a practice of exploring the possibilities between sonic art, improvisation, impromptu composition, and soundscapes, and attempting to use the ear to approach sound from a different angle.
Haco is a composer, vocalist, electroacoustic performer, sound artist, and a founding member of After Dinner and Hoahio. As a musician, she has given performances throughout Japan and the world. With her unique sensibility, Haco has developed a practice based on principles of post-punk, electroacoustics, the avant-garde, improvisation, post-rock, environmental sound, and technology. In 2005, her CD Stereo Bugscope 00 was awarded a prize in the digital music category at Prix Ars Electronica in Austria.
The first meeting. The only meeting.
A body, an instrument, a device, an invention.
Echoes of reality transform into personal language.
Making space for your own voice, making space for all others voices.
Inexperience, memory, necessity, predilection, mind’s ear, consortium.
Sweep of the deep listening.
