Japanese sound artist, evala has created projects trying to expand the “potential of sound” beyond the fields of music, art, urban planning and films all over the world under a project named “See by Your Ears”. His new work, “Sea, See, She – To Whom I Have Yet To See” will be “screened” at Spiral Hall for three days from January 24th.


This work is an invisible cinema where story is told only by sound by a musician, which is unique in the world. It is a new attempt to “see by ears” in the dark space using a three-dimensional sound system.

It evokes human perception and draws stories from sounds. Just listening to the rich and abundant sound, it invites the audience to the forest, deep sea, and any space and time, then it creates infinite images in each emotional landscape.

evala, a musician and sound artist, has released cutting-edge electronic music works in Japan and abroad. His collaboration works also known as duo “ATAK Dance Hall” with Keiichiro Shibuya and “YourCosmos” with Daito Manabe and Kaoru Sugano, etc. He has lectured about sound and technology at the University of Tokyo, Tokyo University of the Arts and Tama Art University. Recent works include a 3D sound program, a vocaloid opera “THE END” surround program, and a sound exhibition “Chosho-Hakkei” at the Nakazu Bansyouen, created with Akio Suzuki, a world renowned pioneer of sound art.

After the pre-live performance in August 2019, this long-awaited world premiere will be a revolutionary experience that will cause a stir in in the modern society of visual floods.
