This is the first opening weekend live performance by Akio Suzuki, who also presents a solo exhibition and oto-date project at the Festival. Known as a pioneer of sound art, he has been performing, building instruments and presenting sound installations since the 1960s. Suzuki works with a range of self-made instruments including Analapos, which creates echoes through the acoustic transmissions of a metal coil spring between two metal cylinders and De Koolmees, consisting of hollow glass tubes suspended over a frame. This solo performance at Newcastle’s historic Castle Keep includes instruments from nature, such as stones from the coast and an ancient stone flute.

Akio Suzuki also presents a solo exhibition, duo performance with Aki Onda and oto-date project during the Festival.
