Tetsuya Umeda
Umeda puts in motion systems and processes for creating sound, and intervenes within these. His sounds are always direct consequences of the systems he sets up - the process is as transparent as possible, without PA or playback of pre-recorded material. His installations use daily, commonplace objects - fans, tin cans, bamboo bowls, buzzers - and the acoustic properties of the space.
