Two exceptional and profoundly attentive sound artists. – Julian Cowley, The Wire

In this duet performance, revered Japanese sound artists Akio Suzuki and Aki Onda respond to the architecture, acoustics, and energy of the performance space. They create music-based experiences and installations with self-made instruments, analogue tape machines, radios, wood, nails, hammers, and daily objects. Suzuki and Onda share a deep interest in the relationship between sound and space—exploring the possibilities of site-specific happenings. The duo has been collaborating for years and released their first album ma ta ta bi, 2014.


Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda “ke i te ki” American Tour is organized by ISSUE Project Room. The project is supported by the Asian Cultural Council.
