Welcome for the beauty of thinking in sounds and art!
SOUND & ART PRODUCE: Takayuki Noami (Non-REM Studio)
Takayuki Noami’s self-produced electroacoustic music project, which advocates noise classical music.
After releasing his first album ‘Foresta’ in 2013, he has been working mainly in the Tokyo metropolitan area and in the virtual space ‘Second Life’.
Since 2015, he has produced the sound installation ‘STRUKTURO’ in Second Life.
In 2016, he participated in Senju LAB #1, a screening of his video works organized by composer Akira Senju, with video director Kenji Agata.
In March 2019, the music video ‘Dancing Fly in My Head’ (directed by Kenji Agata) was released with the cooperation of Akira Senju’s office, Tokyo University of the Arts COI and YAMAHA.
In October 2020, his music video “Soft Strings” (directed by Takayuki Noami) won the Best Music Video Director Award at the International Film Festival “1st Monthly Film Festival” (Serbia).
Influenced by the ideas of Eric Satie and John Cage, Tia Rungray’s music is primarily instrumental, using ambient sounds, piano, and even noise. He creates his own worldview with a unique style that incorporates ambient, post-classical and noise music. The fusion of sophisticated piano and violent and ferocious noise depicts the inner world of human beings, and the rough and raw live performance where stillness and motion coexist is not only soothing to the audience, but also makes them feel even madness.
His first nationally distributed album ‘MindgEsso’ was released on 29 April 2018 on the independent label Cat&Bonito. It has led composer Akira Senju to say “I’ve heard the air of the future”.
On 27 July 2020, he released an album with Yorihisa Taura titled ‘Juvenile’ on the independent label ‘Tannukineiri Records’. The new album “STRUKTURO” was released on 12 February 2021.

New Singe “Cremation” is available!
The song “Cremation” was first performed by Tia Rungray at a live concert to celebrate the release of “MindgEsso” in June 2018, and has since undergone a number of live arrangements. Now it’s time to release it as a single version.
With a mainly post-classical approach, Tia Rungray has matured his sound by applying the techniques he tried on “Strukturo”, released in February 2021.

2nd ACT: Dia G. at 02:00 PM SLT
The person behind the avatar of Dia G (legacy name: Diamanda Gustafson) has studied music since 1978. 20 years later she would earn a Performance Diploma in piano and wildly make out with her new and faithful lover: Early Music.
A self-proclaimed magpie medievalist and instrument hoarder, Dia enjoys exploring the repertory of Western Europe between the 11th and 17th century (with forays to other musical realms as needed!), as well as performing it both in a historically informed way via the use of replicas of period instruments, as well as a more fusion-like manner via the use of a looping pedal, guitar effects, and the inclusion of more modern instruments as well as almost-instruments, creating what I lovingly call “medieval shoegaze”
(because things do not happen in a vacuum, Dia is also a part-time elder goth as well as a recovering metalhead with her own RL entry in Encyclopaedia Metallum due to her collaborations as a keyboardist)
In this performance we’ll explore songs, drones, ostinati and improvisational soundscapes looped, effected and played on the medieval citole, turkish cura saz, hurdy gurdy, algerian mandole, tongue drum, frame drum, bells, jingles, a toy glockenspiel and perhaps some other random stuff found around my house. There is very little preparation work involved other than tuning and checking sound levels. The chair creaking is part of the overall experience.
Although I am unable to type during the performance (because that third arm just refuses to grow), I read main chat as I perform, and any questions asked may be answered through the stream.
ART EXHIBITION: Nodomé Morgenröte
Nodomé Morgenröte (nodome)
“NodosArt”, a creative art and design label has been established by Nodome Morgenröte after a long dark phase in her personal artistic development.
She worked for a number of years as a product photographer and designed everything from print media to digital media to create a complete corporate identity.
The downside to this intensive learning stage was that she lost the freedom of her own art because of a diligent commitment to her design job.
In 2019 she has found her path back to the roots of her real emotional and free art and will go on evolving through digital paintings, photos, and will perhaps develop her expression with charcoal, ink, aquarell/watercolor and other expressive mediums as the inspiration or requests take her!
Nodomé Morgenröte started her art experience as a teenager when she wrote a small blog. Because she could never find the right pictures to embody her writing and lyrics. So she grasped a small camera and started to shoot her own images.
Since then she has been unstoppable.
Photography courses and working groups followed. She was a part of a progressive analog photography working group, a studio photography group, some PC groups where she designed simple html websites.
Nodomé styled her own magazine layout and content adding to her media and business knowledge while working as an intern with some wonderful photographers, designers and webdesigners. So she has taken many more and different steps including drawing courses and has even won some, as yet, minor art prizes.
But the best tutor is life, she says.
With the professional knowledge of a designer and the wildly crazy mind of an artist she will choose the right tool for an breathtaking, individual and original painting, exclusive to your floor!
So if you have a naked wall and want to smile every day, grab an apple in front of her store,
buy YOUR real art \♥/
