Bio

M I N A will explore the relationship and connectivity between Vedic/Okinawa music, and electronic music. The early work of Stockhausen was inspired by eastern music traditions and celebrated Pre-temporisation of the stipulated scale system. 

It is natural for us to think that electronic music and Vedic/Okinawa music are far apart in terms of culture and aesthetic.  MINA explores the symbiosis of these two important and popular forms of music in our sonic visual world. 

The project will be based on the Five element; Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Void.

Each song will have a video, whose fluid collages of imagery and sound draw on movies, memory, chance and sensuality. The work abandons traditional narrative in order to explore the possibilities that arise from the juxtaposition, as well as the rhythms and textures, of images and sound.

 

 

Mina Mermound (Switzerland) was born in Geneva, with a Swiss father and a Japanese mother.

Studied the violin at Geneva Conservatoire of Music with Armène Stakian until obtaining a certificate of final studies with distinction. 

In 2004, during university studies got a scholarship from Japanese Ministry of Education and Culture to study Japanese language and culture in Okinawa for one year.

Learned to play Okinawan traditional music there and wrote a Master thesis about traditional songs.

Back to Switzerland, created a personal project mixing traditional sounds and electronic music. Composed music for strings for hip hop/contemporary dance shows, advertising and short movies. In 2012, co-wrote the music for the electoral campaign of the French president, Francois Hollande.

 

 

Soichi Matsumoto (Japan) is a video artist/designer. He started his career as a freelance video maker/editor after completing his MA in DMI (Digital Moving Image). Creator of the multidisciplinary Quadroptica, he is firmly established in the live visual/VJ scene, performing countless shows around the globe since 2002. as a designer, he has been involved in theatre, fashion as well as corporate projects.

 A truly inquisitive artist, Soichi blends and transforms both traditional and unexpected items into meaningful pieces of self-expression. His love of music and his interest in audio/visual fusion has led him to collaborate with many different musicians and sound designers from across the board.
