Kaori Suzuki @ Studio Grand, 4/3/2017

Stunning synth drone brimming with tension from Kaori Suzuki. The Oakland artist deals in that timeless style of modular synth work surveying that puzzling area between overtones. It reconfigures how sound works in spaces, like rooms or grey substrate between ears. When tones are so often means to an end, it’s always remarkable when an artist so deftly concentrates on just a few.

Suzuki builds synths as well as playing them, and founded the synth company Magic Echo Music. They made a really neat device to let a computer control a Serge synthesizer, that legendary synth system designed by a mad genius professor at Cal Arts in the 70s.

This video was shot by Bill Russell at Studio Grand in Oakland.
