Japanese composer and performer Tomomi Adachi not only works in the field of experimental music, but also in improvisation, poetry, theatre, visual arts and community art. MaerzMusik presents a wide spectrum of his activities:

performances for the body and electronics which use sensory instruments and systems that he developed and built himself, conceptual compositions for amateur players and professional instrumentalists, as well as virtuoso vocalist interpretations of selected works by John Cage and the Dadaist Hugo Ball.
Tomomi Adachi’s works are humorous and sometimes violent. Adachi concentrates on visual elements in music and tensions between conceptual ideas and physical existence.
