Ars Electronica: Ridin' A Train with Death Praxis

Death Praxis sind Ikue Mori und Tenko (USA/J). Tenko’s reiche musikalische Karriere startete in den 70ern in Japan als Mitbegründerin von 'Mitzutama Shobodan' (Polka-Dot Fire Brigade), die mit der Rolle des traditionellen japanischen Frauenbildes in der Darstellung brachen. 1984 erschien Tenko in der New Yorker Musikszene als Solistin, tourte aber sehr bald mit Kollegen wie David Moss, John Zorn, Christian Marclay, Fred Frith oder wie 1993 mit Butho Tänzer (Uzumi Ashikawa).

Death Praxis are Ikue Mori and Tenko (USA/J). Tenko’s rich musical career started in the 70ies in Japan as founder of 'Mitzutama Shobodan' (Polka-Dot Fire Brigade), who broke with the traditional female role model of Japan. 1984 Tenko entered the New York music scene first as a solist, but soon she toured with colleagues like David Moss, John Zorn, Christian Marclay, Fred Frith or with Butho dancer Uzumi Ashikawa (1993).

Due to space limitations, a separate reserved-seating ticket is required.
