AUTONOMIC was made possible by 4Culture and the Jack Straw Cultural Center.
Drawing from his background and interest in the Feldenkrais Method and breath awareness techniques, Paul Kikuchi’s AUTONOMIC is made up of meditative chamber works that explore psychoacoustics, musical intention, and unique approaches to rhythmic flow.
Paul Kikuchi is a percussionist, composer, and sound artist whose work explores a wide range of styles – from chamber music to soundscape ecology – while also considering specificity of site and material, differences in awareness and intention, along with aspects of history, experience, and community.
