Suzuki Akio

Akio Suzuki is a “quester after sound and space”, a pioneer of sound art. During the sixties, Suzuki’s sense of playfulness led him to undertake a series of Self-Study Events, where he exploring processes of “throwing” and “following”, with the natural world as his collaborator. This led him in the seventies to invent an echo instrument he named Analapos, followed by Conceptual Soundwork in the 80s. In recent years, Suzuki has recorded and created sound sources by using electric amplification on self-designed devices, reconstructing sounds and listening to the “factors of place”.
