On this day of punctured wallets by the arrow of Cupid Inc., I pull out a heart that beats to a different rhythm...Yasunao Tone. This pioneer of avant-garde music based performance will be the grand opener of MEDIACITY 12 next Tuesday, Feb. 21st at the Detroit Film Theater. He will be performing PARAMEDIA CENTRIPETAL, which is sound that is driven from the movement of Chinese calligraphy. Yasunao's career spans decades and has performed all over the world many times over. He is still at the cutting edge of sound manipulation and challenges the status quo with distortion, digital feedback and sonic corruption. His most recent release is Palimpsest , a collaboration with Florian Hecker. So, instead of consumer love, try manufacturing dissent to the disruptive sounds of Yasunao Tone. GO SEE HIM LIVE and in the flesh and check out the rest of Mediacity's scheduled events HERE!!
