Tomoko Sauvage

Japanese musician and artist Tomoko Sauvage performs an electro-acoustic response to the Noguchi exhibition.

Inspired by Noguchi's interest in both classical Japanese Gagaku and the emergence of electronic instruments such as the Theremin, Sauvage will use two of the sculptures themselves - Tsukubai and Mountains Forming - as well as her ceramic waterbowl instruments to generate a soundscape accompanying the exhibition.

Over the past decade, Sauvage has been developing her unique electro-acoustic instrument, waterbowls – combining water, hydrophones (underwater microphones), porcelain and glass bowls. Her musical experimentation is grounded in a live-performance-based practice that investigates improvisation and interaction with environment. Sauvage’s work contemplates, tunes and connects with both the material and the immaterial in keeping a fragile balance between hazard and mastery.

If you would like to watch the performance, please book an entry slot to the exhibition from 6:30pm on 11 Nov. The performance will begin at 6:30pm and will last approximately 45 minutes.
