Sunday April 9 2023 Time:
Realistic Monk (Carl Stone + Miki Yui) perform during the final day of the Variations Festival, hosted ny Lieu Unique. During Variations, the music is to be experienced in a multitude of ways: deep listening in reclining mode, solo concerts where the spectator is alone with a musician, talks, film screenings, live A/V, and club events. The festival strives to offer new, more introspective, even meditative formats while maintaining moments of exchange, celebration, and collective energy.
Realistic Monk returns to Tokyo. This is Carl’s ambient unit with Germany-based sound artist Miki Yui. Last performance in Japan was in 2018! The great Takako Minekawa will be sharing the evening and it promises to be an exciting event that you will not want to miss.
