Tomoko Sauvage, WOS Festival, 2018


Tomoko Sauvage is a Japanese musician and artist who is best known for her long-time experimentation on unique hybrid instrument combining water, ceramics, sub-aquatic amplification and electronics. Sauvage’s research is grounded in live-performance practices embracing unpredictable dynamics of materials while incorporating ritualistic yet playful gestures, improvisation with environments and the use of chance as a compositional method. In her performances she examines the sculpturality of sound, using various liquids, bowls, ceramics, light and underwater microphones. She not only incorporates the unpredictable dynamics inherent in the material into her compositions, but also uses chance as a compositional technique.

Sauvage’s performances have been presented internationally including RIBOCA (Riga), V&A Museum (London), Manifesta (Palermo, Marseille), Museo Reina Sofia (Madrid), Roskilde Festival, Centre Pompidou Metz and Nyege Nyege Festival (Uganda). Her installation piece has recently been exhibited at Sharjah Art Foundation (UAE) and Galerie Chantal Crousel (Paris). Her third solo album Fischgeist was recorded in a water tank in Berlin and published by bohemian drips in 2020. She lives and works in Paris since 2003.
