509 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11217
Violinist Mari Kimura’s Mugic in Hues comprises of two world premieres — “Ao-Hagi” (Blue ‘Hagi’), inspired by the work of Japanese master ceramic artist Susumu Notomi, and “Rossby Waving,” taken from Rossby Wave, a natural atmospheric phenomenon relating to rotation of the planet. Kimura will perform using “Mugic” (Musical Gesture Interface Control), a motion sensor expanding the expressive capabilities of instrumental performance, developed in conjunction with physicist Liubo Borissov. The Mugic sensor tracks the intrinsic musical gestures and physical gestures of the performer, interacting with interactive processing of audio and video.

The program will be preceded by pre-concert talk with Susumu Notomi explaining the tradition and the beauty of “Ao-Hagi,” the Blue ‘Hagi’ ceramics from Japan. A prestigious prize-winning ceramic artist in Japan, Mr. Notomi creates renown blue-colored ceramics from ‘Hagi’ area of the Yamaguchi Prefecture in the western Japan.

Mari Kimura is at the forefront of violinists who are extending the technical and expressive capabilities of the instrument. Notably, she has mastered the production of pitches that sound up to an octave below the violin’s lowest string without retuning. This technique, which she calls Subharmonics, has earned Kimura considerable renown in the concert music world and beyond. She is also a pioneer in the field of interactive computer music and an internationally acclaimed a soloist and recitalist in both standard and contemporary repertoire. As of July 2017, Kimura is Professor of Music at University of California, Irvine's «Integrated Composition, Improvisation and Technology» (ICIT) program, Music Department at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts.
