INTERVIEW WITH AKIHIRO NOMURA/AKICOOL.COM PROJECT
There always are something overwhelming in any type of things. Photography,
painting, or parformance, we sometimes meet the one that just catch our
eyes and come to heart directly. Akihiko Nomura's live paformance is
diffenetely one of such a overwhelming art for me. But I don't think
he just has skills. As you see in the interview, his music come to us
as like words, sometimes it's like emotion itself.
He produced instrumental
music for "SUGARLESS", a grand prix
movie of Movie Exhibition of Hiroshima in 2002, also he was a sound producer
of TAMA CINEMA FORUM's grand prise one.
He has been featuering with different type of artists, and never categolized
himself. I can't take off my eyes from his activities.(more info:http://www.akicool.com)
