Shakespeare will perform material from is new release “Domestic Economy” described by eMego as “… a damn near perfect amalgamation of historical respect and contemporary anxiety wrapped in an exquisite song-form package.”

The Moog Symposium is also delighted to host an exhibition of Japanoise flyers created between 1994 to 2011, from the personal collection of Kohei Gomi (Pain Jerk / AMP Label). Attendees to the evening performance will receive a free copy of the extensive full colour catalogue of the Japanoise exhibition, with forewords by David Novak (author of Japanoise (Duke Uni Press 2023), Lasse Marhaug, Paul Smith (Moog Recordings Library/blastfirstpetite).

The Japanoise exhibition and publication were created with the kind support of The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
