川口 貴大 TAKAHIRO KAWAGUCHI
In 2000, Kawaguchi started thinking about field recordings. His interest lies not in the kind of field recordings that focus on sound tones obtained in the field, but on the configuration of sound in a specific space. He creates recorded works using sound-making objects, presents installations, and is active in the field of improvised music.
For live performances, he uses instruments and implements for playing and composing, which he makes by everyday materials. He plays solo performance, installations, and the member of The Great Triangle with Makoto Oshiro and Satoshi Yashiro.
Composing the Whole of Space. The objects used in Kawaguchi’s performances and installations apparently seems strange, but most of them are the emsemble of phenomena which surface by liberating the daily goods from their uses or definition. Kawaguchi uses things anyone can get; converted everyday materials, and so on, but the effects are far more extended from their original potencial ones. Works made of them are shown with it’s most suitable formats; performances, installations, and CDs. All of them are site-specific, and makes the audience realize the time strongly. He focuses not only playing sound, but on composing the whole space by arranging sound and light.
