“Yantra – frequencies in motion” at OTOOTO was a speciel concert event with TONEGÄNGER (Sawada/Draminsky) featuring Yurihito Watanabe aka yxetm+ on vocals.
The installation “Yantra – frekvenser i bevægelse” was originally created in Denmark in 2022 as a collaboration between Draminsky and Danish visual artist Christina Weisgard.
The Japanese version combined multiple screenings of seven digitized paintings inspired by Indian images (Yantra), meditative electronic sound and the three musicians live performance.
Draminsky’s electronic soundscape in “Yantra – frequencies in motion” was composed with inspiration from the German astronomer, Johannes Kepler’s 17th century “music of the sphere”.
And the colour variations in the digitized Yantra draw on a concept developed from A. W. Rimington’s book, Colour-Music (1912).
Each part of the piece evolves within a specific sound and frequency range in relation to one of the seven Yantras.
They can be experienced individually or as a unified whole.
