Mari Kimura: Eigenspace

“Eigenspace” a composition for Augmented Violin (IRCAM) and multi-channel diffusion commissioned by Harvestworks. Taken from “eigenvalue”, a mathematical function used in analyzing the bowing movement, in “Eigenspace” Kimura’s musical expression is extracted by the bowing motion sensor technology, interacting with image and sounds in realtime. She will also perform her works “Elastic Canon” and “Voyage Apollonian” for augmented violin, and “Wrestling an Angel” written for her by British composer Andrew Lovett.

EIGENSPACE for Augmented Violin and Interactive Graphics (2011, world premiere commissioned by Harvestworks)
Graphics by Tomoyuki Kato

“Eigenspace” is commissioned by Harvestworks, which incorporates IRCAM’s bowing motion sensor technology “Augmented Violin” and interactive graphics, created by Japan’s leading visual artist in new media, Tomoyuki Kato who most recently exhibited at 2010 Shanghai Expo. Taken from “eigenvalue”, a mathematical function used in analyzing the bowing movement, in “Eigenspace” Kimura’s musical expression is extracted by the bowing motion sensor technology, interacting with image and sounds in realtime.

Other works include CANON ÉLASTIQUE for Augmented Violin (2009). This “Elastic Canon” is a 1-person canon with a simple delay, but to stretch and shorten using the bowing motion data and gesture. VOYAGE APOLLONIAN for Augmented Violin (2010), Graphics by Ken Perlin, was commissioned by the American Festival of Microtonal Music, “Voyage Apollonian” is an interactive audio visual work using the bowing motion sensor data. Ken Perlin, an Oscar-winning computer graphics artist and professor at NYU, designed this imaginative animation based on the fractal ideas called the “Apollonian Gasket”.

Also, Mari will be premiering the first version of WRESTLING AN ANGEL a work for violin and electronics, written for her by British composer Andrew Lovett. Andrew Lovett recently moved from the UK to live in Princeton, joining the department of music at Princeton University as a Professional Specialist. He is known for small-scale operas, chamber music and electoacoustic works, performed in Germany, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Japan, Canada, Cuba, the USA and throughout the UK.

Tomoyuki Kato is a renown Japanese visual artist/movie director, who works in wide range of projects including advertisements, commercials, museums exhibitions and theme-parks. Kato’s work is known for the superb quality, high-impact, originality and new technical methods. Recently, Kato has been active in creating corporate future vision, such as “concept car”, incorporating live action, computer graphics and animation on project bases. His highly acclaimed “Grand Odyssey” created for 2005 Aichi Expo’s Toshiba/Mitsui pavilion, is now displayed at Nagasaki’s Huistenbosch theme-park. In 2010, Kato created “Better Life from Japan” exhibit for Otsuka Pharmaceutical company at Shanghai Expo, using 360-degree display. Kato has received and nominated for numerous awards at international and national festivals, including Japan Ministry of Culture Media Arts Festival, Los Angels International Short Film Festival, Montreal International Film Festival, and London International Advertising Festival.
