Ei Wada

Ei Wada

Musician / Artist

Ei Wada was born in 1987. Around the time I began to understand things, I came to believe that a music festival would be waiting at a place where there is a gigantic tower shaped like the leg of a crab with a tube television embedded in it. But at a certain moment, one of my friends pointed out that there was no such place on earth. So, in that case, I decided to make a virtue of necessity and to produce it myself. He also is a leader of the Open Reel Ensemble, a group that performs with vintage open reel tape recorders, since 2009. He has provided music for ISSEY MIYAKE's Paris Collection for 6 consecutive times.For his performance work “Braun Tube Jazz Band,” in which he played TV tubes as musical instruments, he received the Excellence Award in the Arts Division of the 13th Media Arts Festival of the Agency for Cultural Affairs. From 2015, he began “Electronics Fantastics!” a project for festival concerts using old household appliances as electronic instruments and has performed in various locations around the world.
