Refraction Festival: Pacific Rhythm with Deep Gnome & Akiko Nakayama // 22-07-20
Refraction Festival is a two-week audio-visual experience and online festival celebrating electronic music, visual art, & internet culture.
Akiko Nakayama's work takes the classic medium of painting to unexpected and post-modern places. The Japanese artist brings her experimental music to life using vibrant, brilliant liquids that combine and wash away, meant to represent the natural growth, change and life cycle of all things on earth. As her sounds mutate through textures soft and hard, resonant and soothing, her liquids mimic those sounds, creating a visual paradigm that represents some of the most mind-blowing effects you'd see at any festival — except they're happening in real life, right at her fingertips.
