Minor Musics Japan opens with Ché-Shizu, an improv-folk group led by Chie Mukai. Since 1981 they have recontextualized folk instruments and electronics in spontaneous actions that are lyrical, compelling, and endearingly unpolished. Mukai also plays duo with LLILW GRAY, alias of No-Neck Blues Band's Keith Connolly.

Chie Mukai leads an improvisation workshop, sharing experiences from thirty years of site-specific performance and improvisation. This workshop continues a teaching practice begun in 2001, it is free and open to 25 practitioners of sound and movement (RSVP required), and also to an audience of observers.

The artistic alter ego of Tori Kudo, Maher Shalal Hash Baz are a fluid large ensemble of untrained musicians that create arresting indie-pop embracing error, structure, and structurelessness. Accordionist and vocalist à qui avec Gabriel creates stark, ethereal and whispering melodies evoking European folk.
