To Be Made Instrument

March 2024


FUJI||||||||||TA is a Japan-based sound artist and composer with a holistic approach to the practice of sound, making no distinction between the aural and the visual. His music draws from various natural phenomena that respond to his interest in hearing unheard sounds and noises. In 2009 Fujita made a DIY instrument, a pipe organ based on an ancient Japanese forging system called “gagaku”. It has 11 pipes and no keyboard. Fujita made it from his own imagination, without any specialist knowledge. It was designed to create atmosphere rather than function as a musical instrument. More recently, Fujita has added the element of water to his repertoire by incorporating synthesised water tanks with sound, along with the pipe organ and voice.

His works are the result of an interest in listening as a primary method of composition. Fujita immerses himself in the sonic environment around him. As a result, the music he composes reflects the behaviour of sound and the listening strategies with which we actively and passively engage in everyday life.
