On 17 April 2018, Midori Takada will perform at London’s iconic Union Chapel for the very first time. The enigmatic Japanese composer and percussionist saw a significant resurgence in 2017, with the reissue of both her groundbreaking 1982 solo album 'Through the Looking Glass', and collaboration with Masahiko Satoh, 'Lunar Cruise'. Her past Mkwaju Ensemble albums, 'Mkwaju' and 'Ki-Motion', are also planned to be reissued by WRWTFWW this Spring.
Her body of work is at once lucid and dreamlike - variously labelled as ambient, minimal and mystical. According to Takada herself : “Everything that exists on this earth has a sound,” she says. “Even if humans don’t call it an instrument, on this earth, there exists a significant vibrancy.”
Takada returns to London after a mind-blowing live performance at The Barbican's Transcender Festival in 2017, which received rave reviews from The Independent and elsewhere.
She will be supported by Jan Jelinek, an experimental producer who’s defining 2001 album Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records is revered as one of the all-time great electronic records. Jen’s live performances are a rare thing.
The opportunity to watch these two artists together in the beautiful surroundings of The Union Chapel make this event one of the most exciting experimental concerts of the year in London
