Tate Modern: Sonic Kusama

Tate Modern: Sonic Kusama


Tate Modern



Audio direction. Technical consultation. Live event technical implementation.

As part of the Infinite Kusama exhibition at the Tate Modern, Simon led a workshop exploring connections between the work of Yayoi Kusama and the creation and representation of new music & sound art through visual audio interfaces. Using Tenori-On and iPad apps, hardware designs and visual creations, set against the beautifully-generative mind of Japanese/New York artist Yayoi Kusama, the flurries of dots and circles and patterns in musical interfaces take on a richer meaning. The array of visual ideas for musical interface begins to take on the same personality of her expansive creations. The galaxies produced out of the minds of musicians somehow overlap with this iconic artist. With this workshop, the sympathetic vibrations become clear.
