UNDER THE DRAGON

At an exceptionally rare event, Chris was invited to perform with the gagaku "sho" musician Tokiko Ihara and environmental soundscape artist Samuel Andre at Kohshoji Temple, Kyoto (May 13th, 2018). The performance was held in the inner sanctum of the temple and officiated over by the head monk Mochizuku sama, who also participated by reciting a Buddhist sutra and offering prayer. This was the first time that a performance was granted permission to take place in the holy dragon-roofed sanctum; the closing event of Kyoto's "Multi-Layered Identities" Art Exhibition.
