KAZEHITO SEKI (JP) is an artist using amplification for voice. Voiz set is played just with one or two microphones and NO electronic FX. Working on the sound produced from the vocal organ in broader and more concrete sense, gives new meaning to what voice can do such as singing, talking, etc. The wide spectrum flickers in subtle ambience, intense silence and brutal harsh noise within a microsecond.

Self Toxication is another project that abstracts the “voice” and forms into deeper levels of sound. The toxin is over amplified in stereo channels which oscillate between sound system and the physical voice, is cut into parts and messes up at the top speed of harsh noise.

DAO ANH KHANH (VN) a surrealist, is an internationally recognized leader among Asian artists who are breaking away from traditional, stylistic, and political constraints. His mind knows no limits, escaping to the outer reaches of the universe in search of tranquility, and finding explosions of renewed personal energy on the way. He is the consummate romanticist, hearing musical instruments and enchanting strains even in the most violent windstorms or disturbances at sea. Dao Anh Khanh is an avowed environmentalist, sculptor, performing artist, musician and painter. His paintings are in lacquer on canvas as well as lacquer on wood.
