Meet the Artist: Kanari Shirao (JP/DE)
Kanari Shirao is a sound and media artist. After graduating in 2009 in Computer Music and Acoustic Design at Tokyo Kunitachi College of Music, he chose to settle in Berlin for further studies. In 2015 he graduated from Berlin University of Art “Sound Studies”, supervised by world world famous artists such as Hans Peter Kuhn, Robert Henke and Sam Auinger.
Kanari Shirao’s artistic practice is conceptually based on the exploration of everyday life phenomenons, for which he seeks an acoustic translation. His work distinguishes itself by its minimalist reduction of the visual elements, in favour of their sonic counterparts. His work has been exhibited in prestigious institutions like Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Berlin, DE, during the Crescendo music festival, Berlin, DE or the Kyoto Art Center, Kyoto, JP.
