Ami Yamasaki & Charlie Collins at Access Space

Access Space presents a rare opportunity to explore the sound world of the remarkable Ami Yamasaki, who makes her UK debut in a series of concerts with percussionist Charlie Collins.

AMI YAMASAKI is a vocalist and cross-media artist from Tokyo. She creates installations, performance pieces, and films. With primal vocals and movement, Yamasaki explores the relationship between us and our universe. Her art explores a fundamental question: "How does the world construct itself" For her, the asking of this question is a love letter to life itself, more important than any answers that it yields.

Yamasaki sings as she works, and the patterns she creates are a direct response to acoustic feedback she receives. She sings, and listens, and “little by little, the space begins to make its own music.”

As a vocalist she has collaborated with Ryuchi Sakamoto, psychedelic rock icon Keiji Haino, Yasnao Tone, Ikue Mori, Carl Stone, and Ned Rothenberg among many others, and provided original music for choreographer Makoto Matsushima. Her elaborate installations have been featured in art spaces across Japan, while her short films have evoked a passionate response, and received critical acclaim.
