Live Noise Venues/Contacts in Japan

Post by vox_barbara » Thu Aug 25, 2016 6:54 pm

Hi all,

I'm going to be spending a week in Japan in December, my first trip there. It's a vacation with my girlfriend, but I would love to bring a small amount of gear along and perform somewhere if I can set something up in advance.

Does anyone know of live music venues in Tokyo open to live noise performances, or, better yet, have any contact information with individuals in the noise scene there they wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks in advance!

Frank

Thanks! Yes, I'm going for a week no matter what, but since my current setup is very light and portable (an Elektron Octatrack and several effect pedals), and all the electrical inputs on my gear are universal, I figured it would be an excellent opportunity to perform some noise in Japan...I figure there must be a venue somewhere in a city of 33 million people that would have me! ;)

Update: I contacted a guy on the Muffwiggler (modular synth) forum who lives in Tokyo and does noise performances there; he totally hooked me up. I'm scheduled to play at The Flying Teapot Cafe (look it up on Youtube, a ton of videos of noise performances there) on Dec. 12, and he's rounding up others to perform on the bill! Will post video here afterwards if it's any good!
