Before a twin disappear.

About the artist:
Ami Yamasaki is a vocalist and cross-media artist from Tokyo. She creates installations, performance pieces and directs films. With primal vocals and movement, Yamasaki explores the relationship between us and our universe. As a vocalist, Yamasaki has collaborated with psychedelic rock icon Keiji Haino and provided original music for choreographer Makoto Matsushima. Her elaborate installations have been featured in art spaces across Japan. Yamasaki sings as she works, and the patterns she creates are a direct response to acoustic feedback she receives as each feather she applies alters the dynamics of the space. She sings, pastes, listens and—in her own words
—“little by little, the space begins to make its own music.”
