Christian Marclay's "Manga Scroll" Japan Premiere
This weekend, a Christian Marclay's piece, entitled "Manga Scroll," will be performed in Yokohama. It is to be held as a part of the Yokohama Triennale and this is the premiere performance of the piece in Japan.
The work requires a vocalist, and the one whom chosen is no other than Makigami Koichi.
The concept of the work is that the performer is to express oneself with voice while reading various words in the score, which is a long scroll with graphical onomatopoeias.
