Since 1963, celebrated Japanese sound artist Akio Suzuki has been creating aural events which have challenged and influenced countless artists in his wake. His guiding principles are those of ‘throwing’ and ‘following’ – from his earliest work in which he literally threw objects down Nagoya railway station’s stairs (and was subsequently dragged away by staff) to sophisticated, extended sessions in which echoes, resonance and the accidental gather to produce profound soundscapes. Suzuki's compositions are at once playfully irreverent and deeply meditative, provoking his listeners to reconsider their relationships with space and time. For Asia TOPA 2020, The SUBSTATION hosts a retrospective exhibition of work from across his vast career, as well as a series of performances, including his lauded duet work with fellow Japanese sound artist Aki Onda.

Akio Suzuki is part of the SUBSONIC program curated for Asia TOPA by The SUBSTATION.
