Paul Kikuchi Solo
Percussionist and sound artist Paul Kikuchi utilizes traditional and unconventional sound making devices to create evocative, textural soundscapes.
A single bell at Honen-in temple rings daily at 4AM, as it has for hundreds of years. The first strikes are so quiet they are sensed more than heard - or was it a dream? The resonance continues long after the monk has made his way down the steep steps of the embankment for morning prayer.
Paul Kikuchi is a percussionist, composer, and sound artist whose work explores a wide range of styles – from chamber music to soundscape ecology – while also considering specificity of site and material, differences in awareness and intention, along with aspects of history, experience, and community.
