Otomo Yohshihide is credited with being one of the most adventurous sound creators of the Tokyo and international music scene since the 1980's. Bringing his experimental and collaborative sound scapes to Perth, he will create and then conduct a Double Orchestra made up of local musicians. The work will culminate in an extraordinary public concert on Saturday 10 December. This concert is born out of his recent project in Fukushima and calls attention to the situation in Japan.
