MutipleTap Music Festival is a music event founded by Japanese-Korea guitarist Kou Katsuyoshi. It has been successfully held in UK, Germany and Mexico.
The letter Kou Katsuyoshi wrote to Yin Yi says: our aim is to introduce to the world what's happening in Japan's music scene today. Japan has a mixed up, chaotic music scene that includes traditional, electronic, experimental, and extreme avant-garde music, these are all happening simultaneously. What Yin Yi replied was that we have to blend them together!
As a result, audition and MutipleTap will be well blended at Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum this April.

Our aim is to introduce to the world what's happening in Japan's music scene today.
Japan has a mixed up, chaotic music scene that includes traditional, electronic,experimental, and extreme avant-garde music, these are all happening simultaneously.
A variety of musicians/artists from different genres/art forms - some of them are not even recognized usually as music - will be showcased at this special occasion. From noise, avant-garde to traditional gagaku or gidayu-shamisen, some intense originalities among current Japanese culture have been selected.
So we plan to deliver a major aspect of Japan's chaosity by holding a music festival. And we are trying to invite the musicians of the world to Japan in year after next. This event comes and goes between the Japan and the world. But now, this kind of music has begun todecline, and does not have the young musicians.
We would very much like to share an essence of the ongoing Japanese music culture and create a path for feedback towards the rest of the world.
We believe that it would fuel the rapid development of the future music in Japan and the world.
Free admission, reservation is required.
