A pickups is a microphone like those in electric guitars which amplifies metal vibration andelectromagnetic fields.

This microphone does not regulate the vibrations of the air, but all the vibrations of metallic objects and also in contact with the
surface of the magnet. It will be possible to amplify the vibration of a guitar string, springs and all others metallic objects. This
microphone is also sensitive to the perturbation of electromagnetic fields from mobile phones, digital screens and other electronic devices.

Yo No Bi #3 - Asuna

ame, Full of Noises and Cuspeditions present a short UK tour showcasing installation works and performances by two of Japan’s most innovative sound artists, ASUNA and Tomoko Sauvage. Starting with two new installations and performances at Full of Noises, Barrow-in-Furness (Fri/Sat/Sun 17-19th August), the tour continues to Caustic Coastal, Salford (Tues 21st Aug) and concludes at Access Space Sheffield (Weds 22nd Aug).

ASUNA is a sound artist from Japan who has been active since the early 1990's. He produces installation work and live performances including ‘Each Organ’, a sound installation that explores the etymology of the portable electronic organ. His performances make use of many tiny cheap toys to create a multilayered and fascinating plastic universe of drones, loops and occasional pop implosions. After debuting on the Spanish label Lucky Kitchen in 2003, ASUNA has gone on to release over 60 works on various labels around the world. In 2018 he will be touring his work around Europe, with new work premiering at the Full of Noises festival in the UK.

Tomoko Sauvage is a Japanese musician and artist active since the mid-2000’s. Her work investigates the sculpturality of sound and improvisation in relation to the environment. Mainly known for a musical / visual research about ‘natural synthesizer’ of her invention, composed with diverse fluid, bowls, ceramic, light and underwater amplification, Sauvage’s approach is attached to questions of alchemy, meditation and balance between hazard and mastery. Taking the form of performances, installations and musical compositions, her work is regularly presented in Europe, Asia and America.

Yo No Bi #3 is a Full of Noises & ame project curated by Ryoko Akama with support from Cuspeditions, Arts Council England and the Japan Society.
