Yasunao Tone
AI Deviation
European Premiere
United States/Japan

Tone doesn’t modify sound. He changes the information. By sticking pieces of perforated adhesive tape to the bottom of a CD he deflects the player’s reading laser of the bits in the byte groups. Thus the information changes.
At LUFF he will once again, true to his “paramedia” art, expand the horizons of artificial intelligence by subverting its preconceived use. In the fifties Tone paved the way for unconscious silent pulses in music (Group Ongaku, the first group of improvised music in Japan), then took part in the destabilization of Western musical art’s foundations (founder of Fluxus in Japan).
