Mikatsiu: Resident in 2023
Mikatsiu was a Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee resident during Spring 2023.
THIS INELUCTABLE OPERA - VARIATION 1
This audio work marks the final outcome of the residency project of Mikatsiu during their Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee residency. It focused on remote sensing, consideration of the different communication abilities of dancing spiders, questioning what is needed to sense the detached regions of one’s own body, and tuning enunciation towards melodies as they unravel stories into perceivable frequencies.
Mika Hayashi Ebbesen, aka Mikatsiu, is a queer Japanese-Norwegian artist who identifies as a frequency witch and works in the independent arts publishing sector as an editor. Projects as a performer and composer over the past decade stem from a life-long interest in physical and sonic choreography; their curiosity is centred around investigating the ever-evolving social relationships woven between archives and practices of attunement. From 2018 to 2021 they co-curated From Breath To Matter, a Berlin-based event series exploring the voice as a medium within the field of sound-dance, and hosted a podcast mini-series with Jule Flierl about experimental vocal practices.
