Image X Sound: Films by Tatsu Aoki

Directed by: TATSU AOKI

Chicago artist Tatsu Aoki has been straddling an ambitious music and film career for over 30 years. As a bassist, he combines eastern and western influences using improvisational jazz and traditional Japanese music that has sustained over 90 recordings and attracted widespread acclaim. As a filmmaker, he has been producing an extensive body of work that uses experimental and diaristic techniques to transform and examine his everyday world. For this program, Tatsu will be presenting several lesser-seen works from his extensive filmography, and performing a live acoustic set with musical collaborator Jonathan Chen. Guest artist Adebukola Bodunrin will also present a new experimental work. (various years, 16mm, video, total time approximately 90 min.)
