Adachi Tomomi

  • Born 1972 in Ishikawa, Japan.
  • Based in Berlin, Germany.

Adachi Tomomi is a performer, composer, sound poet, instrument builder, and visual artist. Known for his versatile style, he has performed his own voice and electronics pieces, sound poetry, improvised music and contemporary music works and also presented site-specific compositions, compositions for classical instrumental ensembles, and choir pieces for untrained musicians around the world, including Tate Modern (London, UK), MaerzMusik (Berlin, Germany), Hamburger Bahnhof Museum (Berlin, Germany), Centre Pompidou (Paris, France) and Poesiefestival Berlin (Germany). He uses a wide range of materials in his work, including self-made physical interfaces and instruments, artificial intelligence, brain waves, artificial satellite, Twitter texts, fractures, and even paranormal phenomena.

Adachi presents an intermedia space which is composed of the acts of seeing, reading, listening to and touching texts using audio, visual, hologram and 3D printing in the Contemporary Art exhibition.

For Aichi Triennale 2022’s Performing Arts program, Adachi will direct John Cage’s late work, Europeras 3 & 4. Adachi will also present a solo performance of sound poetry.
