Join DADo for an evening screening of Moriyama-San, a 2016 film by artist duo Bêka & Lemoine. The film records a week in the life of Mr Moriyama, a Tokyo resident living in the architecturally celebrated Moriyama House, designed in 2005 by Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA). From noise music and silent films to literature and fireworks, Moriyama’s story is one of unique urban living, supported by a novel home which decidedly reimagines the concept of domestic life.

Japanese Noise + Expo 70 Osaka with Dylan Martorell of Slow Art Collective
Accompanying Moriyama-San will be a talk from Dylan Martorell of Slow Art Collective. Dylan will speak about the Japanese noise scene, including the influence of West Germany’s pavilion for the Expo 1970 in Osaka. Based on Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Artistic and Electronic Studio at the Technical University in Berlin’s audio-technical concept and realised by architect Fritz Bornemann, the pavilion was the world’s first spherical concert hall. You’ll hear about how sound design informed this unique space and listen to some samples of the electro-acoustic sound compositions specially commissioned or adapted for the expo.
Slow Art Collective focuses on sustainability, collaboration and community by deploying DIY survivalist aesthetics. Recently commissioned projects include Tokyo Biennale, TarraWarra Museum of Arts, McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Powerhouse Museum, Mpavillion (Botanic Garden, Monash University and Dockland), NGV, Gertrude Contemporary and Esplanade Singapore.
Independently, Dylan Martorell‘s music-based art practice is housed within the conceptual framework of the musical diaspora. He is drawn to how music travels through space and is affected by changes in geography, climate, culture and materials to become an agent for cross-cultural reciprocation. Dylan co-founded the Forum of Sensory Motion, performs both in a solo and group capacity and is a founding member of Snawklor and the Hi – God People.
