Keiji Haino (JP): Percussion solo

In his works Haino explores rhythm, space and breathing. He seeks the moment of birth as well as the intrinsic breathing in music, motion and words. Haino wants his music to influence all the senses of the listener and to make the audience inquire about the original meaning of existence.

Keiji Haino has performed since the 70’s in various avant-garde musical ensembles in his native Japan as well as in Europe and in the US. Today he most often performs in the guise of a vocalist, percussionist and guitarist. In his works he uses a saw, a hurdy-gurdy, a sound generator and a countless number of ethnic and ancient instruments.
