Hidden River, Tokyo

‘Hidden River’ was a piece performed as part of the Shibuya: Underground Streams set of performance and installations.

Myself, Philip Samartzis and Christophe Charles performed this work live at a container on the Shibuya River – which is covered for much of its distance by streets or channeled into a sewer. The bits and pieces I shot live for the vision track were found along the path of the Shibuya River as it travels beneath Cat Street to show a river you can’t see. Phil & Christophe used recordings made along water ways in Tokyo from the Sounds of Weather field work conducted 2011.
