AIRMW and Hairpin Arts Center welcomes Spring and KIKÙ HIBINO as the April Sudden Impact musical guest. Japanese-born, Chicago-based sound artist KIKÙ HIBINO produces cross-genre electronic music. From chamber music for media productions to non-liner analog noise for art installations, he has collaborated internationally with a wide variety of artists and scholars, including Kawaguchi Takao (Dumb Type), Curtis Roads, Norma Field, Theaster Gates , Mike Weis (Zelienople), Mitsu Salmon, and Yuge Zhou. The publication, The Wire once described his music as “trying to cram in as many memories as possible before it all disappears” and that the music “concerns itself with themes of capturing and preserving fleeting moments” (2007, issue 279). His recent work attempts to deconstruct Chicago House Music through the noise music production approach. The project was funded by DCASE and presented at various locations in Chicago. He studied electronic music composition at Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus with Toru Iwatake, Atau Tanaka, and Christopher Penrose, and at University of California at Santa Barbara with Curtis Roads and Karen Tanaka, and holds M.A. in media art and technology.
