A Blend of Classical and the Avant-garde
Yugenism: Animated Soundscapes of the Japanese Sublime is the new experimental music and animation project fronted by British producer and sound artist Verity Lane. Lane has collaborated with three animators and one traditional Japanese dancer to create four sonic installations thatpresent an alternative take on classical Japanese music. With a mix of world-class British and Japanese traditional instrumentalists, this project boasts intimate live performances as well as visual artwork and spoken word.
