Japanese New Music Festival 2014

JAPANESE NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 presents: RUINS alone + TSUYAMA ATSUSHI + KAWABATA MAKOTO + ZOFFY + AKATEN + ZUBI ZUVA X + PSYCHE BUGYO (Tsuyama's Psychedelic Judgement) + ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE SWR @ OCCII

The Japanese New Music Festival is a showcase tour in which the trio of Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Atsushi Tsuyama (Acid Mothers Temple), and Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple) perform as multiple different units. The tour will return to Europe this autumn, with the three performers as 8 separate groups. The groups mix and deconstruct all kinds of music from psychedelic rock, prog jazz, classical to contemporary composition, experimental, and ethnic music. Their sound is unashamedly uncategorizable, with undercurrents of Frank Zappa and his belief that humour was an essential part of music. Each of the members brings a rich wealth of musical learning, knowledge and experience. The line-up for this year’s tour will be: Ruins Alone, Acid Mothers Temple SWR, Akaten, Zoffy, Zubi Zuva X, Psyche Bugyo, Atsushi Tsuyama Solo, Makoto Kawabata Solo.
