灰野 敬二 (Keiji Haino) solo voice performance

Saturday, April 13, 2013 at 8:00pm to 10:00pm

Fairchild Chapel, Bosworth Hall 50 West Lorain Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Keiji Haino's (b. 1952 in Chiba, Japan) 30-year career has encompassed a dizzying range of approaches from wild, guitar-led ensemble rock and near-Neolithic drumming; live electronics, untutored explorations of lute and flute, to voice experiments and extended performances for gamelan and other percussion. 

Aside from his commitment to free rock titans Fushitsusha, Haino has collaborated with artists as diverse as Rashied Ali, Jim O'Rourke, Peter Evans, Derek Bailey, Boris, Bill Laswell, Tony Conrad, Faust, John Zorn, Sunn O))), Loren Mazzacane Conors, Peter Brötzmann, Merzbow, The Melvins, Yamantaka Eye (of Boredoms), Charles Gayle, Oren Ambarchi, Damo Suzuki (of CAN), Han Bennink, Sachiko M, Thurston Moore, Mike Patton, NON, Ikue Mori, Otomo Yoshihide, Fred Frith, and members of Les Rallizes Dénudés.

Throughout, Haino has retained a visionary focus upon temporary suspension through noise (and silence) whilst refining a mercurial, highly distinctive method and an arrestingly dramatic on-stage presence that borrows the raiments of performance art.
