Mai Asia Music Festival

On Sunday I cycled over to Miashima, where the Hundertwasser designed waste treatment plant is located, for the Mai-asia music festival. Despite the weather having been good all week it decided to take a change for the worse just for festival day and rained heavily for most of the day.

Despite the bad weather, everyone donned their brightly coloured raincoats and continued to enjoy the day. I had primarily come to see Takkyu Ishino play, for the second time this year but enjoyed many of the other acts as well. Surgeon was especially good, as was Oorutaichi who I haven't seen play for some time. Dancing in the rain in the evening kind of added an intensity to Surgeon and Takkyu's set and I went home exhausted, drenched but thoroughly satisfied!


Takkyu Ishino

New Work - Snow Queen

A queen ruling over a harsh, snowy planet somewhere in a far flung corner of the universe. What is the story behind this cold character?
