Self-Made Instruments and Telepathy in Improvisation

A Public Talk and Discussion with Tomomi Adachi
September 27, 2013 8 pm - 10 pm
at 10 Carden, downtown Guelph

Improvisation, Community, and Social Practice presents a dialogue with one of Japan's most dynamic and innovative performers, Tomomi Adachi. From his punk style choirs to his work with self-made electronic instruments, to his furious solo vocal performances, Tomomi is a leading creative force in contemporary music, theater, and performance poetry. His presentation will kick off the 2013-2014 season of the ICASP's Thinking Spaces group; a group, open to the general public and occurring every other Friday, that meets to discuss critical issues in music, art, improvisation and related themes. For our kick-off event, Tomomi will discuss his self-made electronic instruments and his newest project, The People's United Telepathic Improvisation Front. He will share examples of his work and we'll leave plenty of time for questions and discussion. For more information on Tomomi, see

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Improvisation is, simply put, being and living this very moment. No one can hide in music, and improvising in music is to be truly in this very moment and being completely yourself, with all your qualities and faults. It is probably the most honest state for a human being to be in.
