Worldwide launch in London and Manchester
5th & 6th September 2007
The TENORI-ON by Toshio Iwai and Yamaha receives its worldwide launch on 5th & 6th September 2007. TENORI-ON is a unique AV instrument – a cross between intuitive performance instrument and art object – designed by media artist Toshio Iwai.
Futuresonic is excited to co-present the worldwide launch of the TENORI-ON. Toshio Iwai’s TENORI-ON show at Futuresonic 2006 was an undisputed highlight of the festival, and the positive audience response in the UK led Yahama to stage the worldwide launch in London and Manchester.
The TENORI-ON has been showcased and refined at major music events and media art festivals; Art Futura (Spain), Futuresonic (UK), Ars Electronica (Austria), SIGGRAPH (USA) and Sonar (Spain), with the first fully realised live show produced by Futuresonic in Manchester as a part of Futuresonic 2006.
Toshio Iwai will be joined by Robert Lippok, Capracara and Secondo on 4th September at Phonica in London and by Robert Lippok, Secondo and Graham Massey on 5th September at Mint Lounge in Manchester.
