Yuri Suzuki: New Music New Functionalities

Yuri Suzuki curates an evening of talks and performances exploring the connection between contemporary design and music.

What to expect

Curated by the sound designer and electronic musician Yuri Suzuki, this event examines the work of creative practitioners breaking new ground within music and sound design.

Suzuki will be joined by product designer Vahakn Matossian from Human Instruments, and artist Imogen Piper, whose musical composition ‘Encoded Revolt’ is derived from the co-ordinates of airstrikes in Syria. The evening will feature a rendition of ‘Encoded Revolt’, as well as a live performance by the celebrated musician John Kelly, a member of the British Paraorchestra.

New Music New Functionalities is part of a wider series of performances and talks curated by the quarterly design journal Disegno to celebrate Suzuki’s Furniture Music exhibition at the Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston upon Thames.
