Otomo Yoshihide, IQ+1

A concert of the legend of the contemporary avant-garde music scene.

Otomo Yoshihide is a legendary Japanese guitarist, music composer, turntablist, and a master of free improvisation. He is one of the most important and influential figures on the contemporary music scene, setting the pace since the 1990s not only in terms of the Japanese context. There he belongs to the generation of exceptional and prominent creators among which are for example Merzbow, Keiji Haino, Hoppy Kamiyama, or Tatsuya Yoshida. His ability to embrace basically the whole musical universe sets him alongside names such as John Zorn and Mike Patton.

IQ+1, the prominent representatives of abstract ambient music, bring us an uncompromising electroacoustic report about the vitality of the Czech improvisation scene. After almost six years of experimenting, material collecting, and finding luck in other music projects, IQ+1 collective released its third album titled “Conversaphone Plus” under the Slovak label mappa at the beginning of 2019.
