Fluid Piano
Kyo Ichinose (Japan)

Fluid Piano is a spin-off project of Kyo Ichinose's next work focusing on one of the world's most popular instrument – the piano – as the main instrument.

Kyo's performance will be an exploration of the boundary between “composition” and “improvisation”, which are often considered mutually exclusive. By improvising extemporarily on both conventional and nonconventional scores through playing with the rules of melodies and rhythm, visuals and text, he hopes to create a sense of sonic “wonder” for the audience through this combination of structure and amorphous play.

Piano + Laptop Live
Teruyuki Nobuchika (Japan)

A renowned composer of scores for many cinematic and TV drama series in Japan, Teruyuki Nobuchika presents his premiere live performance in Singapore, featuring selections from his solo albums as well as well-loved repertoire from soundtrack compositions.

While Nobuchika is most known for his compositions for TV drama series including Vacation (Kyuka) (2007),Yankee Kun to Megane Chan (2010), School!! (2011), Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku (2010), Buzzer Beat (2009), and CHANGE (2008), his personal albums reveal a more experimental side to his music.

His debut album morceau's folktronica sampling and field recordings transports listeners to gentle, breezy summer nightscapes in the park, while his sophomore album sonorité utilises the piano and laptop to create beautifully evocative ambient songs, described by Textura magazine as “miniature soundtracks to scenes of wide-ranging emotional character.”

With reviews stating him as a peer to pianists such as Goldmund, Johann Johannsson, and Hauschka, Nobuchika's performance at the Fringe is bound to bring audiences through an emotional, evocative sonic journey.
