Six String Sonics, The

Performance [Japan]


Reason for Award

One of the thrills of art is that it hints at new views and possibilities outside of the norm. In this project, a six string guitar is reinvented as six single string guitars to be played by six musicians. Though this idea had been in the artist’s mind for years, recent digital effects processing technologies finally made the project a reality. Their unique stage presence redefines the relationships between the body and space in live music. The lively expressions of the musicians make quite an impression.
