The first event in the book launch tour of FOUR, celebrating the fourth issue of mumei publishing’s free online journal, Reductive Journal. The central tenet of the journal investigates the diverse perceptions that occur when we deal with text and sound. It attempts to consider minimal and abstract forms of art to interrelate sonic, image and text experiences. We ask various contributors to participate in each issue with their own compositional approaches and methodologies in relation to the journal theme. The first three journals include works from Taku Sugimoto, Toshiya Tsunoda, Manfred Werder, Jesse Goin, Joseph Clayton Mills and many more.
Audience members will be able to view the exhibition before and after the performance.
