Influenced by the movement of traditional Noh actors, Convexed Origins links ancient Japanese gestures as both sound and movement. This is a summoning to one’s ancestors through the simplicity of line, shape and texture of sound and body. The pre-recorded electronic part dictates the form, the flute outlines the body and the movement extends the boundaries of the music.
