“Matters-ton” from Hyper Serial Music is an audiovisual performance and the second chapter of Tatsuru’s Hyper Serial Music project. The series is aiming to expand – in a new, contemporary sense – classical means related to the history of Serial Music. In this work, the artist developed and evolved into a more complex result of higher quality, unfolding the relation between sound and matter in regard to the three dimensions of space. By means of algorithmic simulation, principles designing the audiovisual substance are correlated directly; thus showing the physical side of the universe through human perception.
Tatsuru Arai's studies took him from Tokyo via Graz to the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin, where he graduated in 2013. His artistic focus lies in the fusion of classical music and new technologies as well as the aesthetics of geometric structures to enable perceptual experiences of the physical nature of the universe. Recent venues include Kinetica Artfair in London, Flow Festival in Helsinki, Signal Festival in Cagliari, CTM Transmediale Festival in Berlin, Klankvorm Rotterdam, MADATAC Festival in Madrid, ACT Festival Gwangju in South Korea.
