Yosuke Fujita, also known as Fuji||||||||||ta, is a sound artist, organist and composer based in Japan. Fujita’s artistic practice centers on the exploration, manipulation and presentation of unheard sounds and noises commonly found within nature, including the use of air, water and even the echolocation of bats. In 2009 Fujita hand fabricated a Pipe Organ that has only 11 pipes and no keyboard. Fujita conceived and built it using his imagination, without any prior or specialized knowledge. Designed to create a landscape rather than function as a musical instrument, he took the idea from the Japanese “gagaku”. The air pump (called “fuigo”) which is kept moving by the left hand when playing and is based on associations with an ancient blacksmith. This is a unique instrument that Fujita had to learn to play. Recently, he has added synthesized water sounds from multiple aquariums alongside his pipe organ and his voice.

Since 2006, Fujita has had many solo performances and collaborative works with musicians, including ∈Y∋ (Boredoms), Akio Suzuki, Keiji Haino, and Koichi Makigami. He has presented his sound installation works in many contexts: the work “CELL”, which made audible the sounds of black soldier fly maggots buried in dirt, was exhibited in Sapporo International Art Festival 2017, and attracted a great deal of interest in Fujita’s artistic practice. A performance with an organ and 4 water tanks were performed in MODE (London) in 2019. In 2020, he released the albums “iki” [Hallow Ground] and “KŌMORI” [Boomkat Editions].
