Ensemble for Experimental Music and Theater
Fri 3 Nov 8PM | £9 door / £7 adv – BUY TICKETS

The Tokyo-based Ensemble for Experimental Music and Theater (EEMT) explores questions around theatre and notation, propounded by John Cage. EEMT critiques and reconstructs the genealogy of conceptualism from Fluxus, the Scratch Orchestra and earlier Minimal Music to the stream of the Wandelweiser Group. The members have various backgrounds; music, performing arts, sound art, visual arts, and poetry. With self-organised concerts  the group is active since 2011 and has been performing various experimental music, written as text or graphic scores. EEMT also held an exhibition based on the graphic score ‘Sapporo’ (Toshi Ichiyanagi, 1962) in 2012.
