Yokohama based artist and composer Toshiya Tsunoda has produced innovative works of field recording and collage for 15 years, carefully concentrating the lyrical power of the world we inhabit. Tonight Tsunoda comes to ISSUE to present two live solo sets— first, a performance reframing his field recording materials, followed by a work for laptop, vibration-plates, and sine waves. Preceding the performances, Tsunoda premieres a new set of two short films, microscopic observations of nature in detail, seated in an exploration of light and color.

Toshiya Tsunoda has been prolific in the experimental arts community for over two decades. Born in 1964 in Kanagawa, Japan, he studied oil painting at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, where he received an MFA. In 1994, he co-founded and ran label WrK alongside m/s, releasing sound art pieces from various young Japanese sound artists, including his own. He currently runs labels Skiti and edition.t. Tsunoda's recorded works often take the form of untainted field recordings— his Extract from Field Recording Archive series documents vibrations through solid objects and air, and his CD Ridge of Undulation features minimally processed recorded landscapes and vibrations, with sparse sine waves. Tsunoda has released collaborations with Seijiro Murayama, Taku Sugimoto, Mitsuhiro Yoshimaru, and (most recently) Michael Pisaro, among many others. Tsunoda’s work is currently on view at MoMA as part of "Soundings: A Contemporary Score", through November 3rd 2013.
