Living Under Radiation - The Role of Arts After 3.11 Fukushima

In the wake of Japan's Fukushima nuclear disaster in March, musician Yoshihide Otomo began organizing "Project Fukushima!" - an open-ended autonomous movement for people to create and express ideas in diverse media, and learn about radiation-specific science to tackle the invisible threats of radiation that has been contaminating the vast area of Japan. In August, they organized an outdoor music festival in Fukushima not far from the still leaking nuclear power plant, whose planning was accompanied by daily radiation monitoring in the outdoor venue. Hear Otomo speak of the reasons for this project, the controversies surrounding it, and the prospects for art, music, and recovery in Fukushima.

Otomo Yoshihide 大友 良英 is a pioneering composer of noise, house, new jazz and other musical forms in Japan and internationally.
