Takami Nakamoto and Sebastien Benoits


Audiovisual performance

Japanese noise artist Takami Nakamoto, one half of SHAPE‘s Nonotak, has joined forces with French drummer Sebastien Benoits to create Nonotak flavored spatial graphic art with a sonic upgrade. Their collaboration has resulted in Reflections, an audiovisual performance without screens and projectors. A smoke-filled, sound-intense, stroboscopic lights, LEDs and 32 light sticks riddled answer to the question about the architecture of noise.

In their live audiovisual performances, the French-Japanese duo Nonotak, composed of artists and musicians Noemi Schipfer and Takami Nakamoto, are blurring the boundaries between virtual and real space by integrating melodic glitchy experimental techno with screenings mapped on geometrical structures spreading across several screens. Part visual art installations, part electronic music concerts, their creations with titles like Daydream, Isotopes or Dream Collapse, are spectacles of their own kind, universes of sound metamorphoses that are easy to get lost in.

Stage set: Nonotak
Co-produced by Indigo Festival and MoTA – Museum of Transitory Art.
In 2016, Nonotak is part of Shape Platform for Innovative Music and Audiovisual Art, which is co-founded by the Creative Europe Programme.
Reflections is also one of the pre-festival events in the frame of SONICA: SONIC.ARCHITECTURES.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
