Image of the Week: Otomo’s Feedback

This weekend, the Center for Ethnomusicology at Columbia University is hosting a two-day interdisciplinary conference on sound, titled Listening In, Feeding Back. And on Friday, February 13, 2009, several participants gave a concert. Below is Tokyo-based musician Otomo Yoshihide in a solo performance:

Also performing that evening were Alvin Lucier and, as a trio, James Fei, Kato Hideki, and Nakamura Toshimaru. The above photo is reproduced courtesy of Peter Gannushkin / downtownmusic.net, an amazing resource of photo documentation of outward bound music in the New York City area.
