Camera: Masayuki Yonaha, Heidrun Holzfeind, Kazuhiro Shirao, Hiroko Maruyama
Editor: Heidrun Holzfeind
Music: Sound: IRO / Toshio und Shizuko Orimo
The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Shizuko and Toshio Orimo have improvised with sounds somewhere between jazz and punk since the early 1980s. The pair calls themselves IRO, and Heidrun Holzfeind not only listened in on them, but also stages it visually, with rhythmic cuts, modernist architecture, and archive recordings. Japan, abstract and vivid strapped together.
