Yuki Nakagawa Born in 1986, Yuki Nakagawa plays and performs using the cello, electricity, and various recorded sounds. His work explores the themes of measuring the “distance” that exists between the act of performing and the sound that appears through that act, and investigating how the self can exist “there/here” while playing (as well as quick wit regarding this). Through the act of performance, he reflects on the attack on music that contradictory acts (measuring the distance about oneself, by oneself, by moving) emit and the attack (that is, the response) from music. Alongside his solo career, he also performs as a band, creates music for stage performances by the likes of Karasuma Stroke Rock, and collaborates with other artists.
