AKIKOxRASMUS is a collaboration between Akiko Nakayama and Rasmus Zschoch. They first met during the “Koumaria Residency” in 2016, where they started combining Akiko’s “Alive Painting” and Rasmus’ sound improvisation.
Akiko brings pictures to life in her “Alive Painting” work, by combining the energy of movement and the vibrance of colours, depicting the resonance between shapes and textures by using different types of liquids, each with a unique characteristic.
Rasmus’ work is grounded in ambient, drone and noise music. By using analogue sound sources and digital means of sound processing, he is able to improvise electronic music ‘organically’, combining classical harmony and accidental noises into a unique sonic image.
