Jazz Art Sengawa

September 16, 2016 - September 18, 2016

jazz art sengawa

Addressing Japan’s staid jazz festival scene is Jazz Art Sengawa, at a sleek Tadao Ando development in suburban Sengawa. This year’s event takes in performances by Makigami himself alongside co-director/ cellist Hiromichi Sakamoto, with the theme, “feral ·intimate·alive.” Makigami will direct a staging of John Zorn’s notorious game-theory music piece “Cobra” to conclude the event, and also perform with his influential art-punk group Hikashu. Sakamoto will attack his cello as per usual with power tools, an experience that seldom fails to startle. Also on the bill are one-time Sonic Youth member and noted noise music artist Jim O’Rourke, along with Rob Turner, the percussionist behind GoGo Penguin, a British trio acclaimed for its innovative mashups of elements of electronica, trip-hop, jazz, rock, and classical music.
