Blue Flow: an album of electroacoustic music and Hamon – a self-made steel drum devised by Japanese artist Teppei Saito
SATURDAY 17 JULY + SUNDAY 18 JULY, 14:00-15:00 + 16:00-17:00
Live performance by Chiharu MK and Sachiko Nagata at Glass Pyramid in Sapporo’s Moerenuma Park on 17 June 2012.
Blue Flow is a collaborative work by two Japanese female musicians, featuring Chiharu MK’s field recordings and Hamon percussion played by Sachiko Nagata. Their contributions are computer processed to musically maximise their layers of reverberations and resonances.
Chiharu MK’s field recordings were made in Cape Kamui and Otaru Suitengu Shrine in Hokkaido. These sacred places are known as the territory of gods. Otaru city is also known for its glassware production. As you walk the city streets, you will find various glass wind chimes hung from the eaves and roofs of buildings.

The Large Glass [Video presentation]
On loop throughout the fair.
The Large Glass, journal for contemporary art, culture and theory act as one of the essential mediums of MoCA for the presentation, analysis and discussion of a wide range of current challenges and topics in culture, art and theory. The journal expanded on the initial ambition of the Skopje Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) to radiate new ideas and maintain the highest ethical and professional standards, but also signified a new beginning of constant reassessment through criticism and analysis of contemporary art. This commitment to contemporary art and international trends in art and criticism is in line with the original ideals and establishment of the MoCA, as a museum fully engaged in dialogue with international authors and with a focus on the ever-changing challenges in the sphere of culture and art.
