WSK 2014 will be headlined by two of Japan’s most groundbreaking electronic musicians to have crossed over in recent years: Yosi Horikawa and Daisuke Tanabe on November 7, at Black Market, Pasong Tamo, Makati City. Together, they produce music and sound design that is equal times experimental and genre-defying, yet undeniably approachable. They are joined by influential indie-electro duo Stylish Nonsense from Thailand, and Canada’s pioneering ambient musician Szkieve.
Supporting acts include our very own homegrown artists, such as Children of Cathode Ray, one of the seminal media art collectives in the 80s, in their first reunion performance since 2001, alongside beatsmith Caliph8 and local electronica pioneer Malek Lopez. They will also be joined by Black Market’s resident DJs. All musical performances will be accompanied by live visuals and projections from some of the best media artists working today in the USA, Manila, and Southeast Asia: Gene Kogan, a New York-based media artist and programmer; media artist Ricky Janitra and art-tech-hacker community Lifepatch from Indonesia; together with some of the top live VJs, motion graphic artists, and visual labels in Manila, such as UNDE, MVLTIVERSE, and Edsel Abesames. Door charge is 500php after 10.30pm.
