ISSUE Project Room
by Yasuno Miyauch
An experimental voice ensemble performance composed by Japanese composer Yasuno Miyauchi.
With highly curated light and staging, Yasuno Miyauchi transforms the Issue Project Room into ritual space.
Her work explores the expressive potential of collective singing, with an emphasis on performative affect, spatial distribution of vocal spectra; and the ecstasy of extended repetition, featuring choreographed bodily movement—providing the musical timeline with an accompanying visual narrative—all with the ultimate goal of binding female bodies and their voices to a site of radical perceptual experience.
