“Born in 1987. Ei Wada adapts old-fashioned electronic machines, converting them into computer-controlled devices. He puts on performances with these machines, as well as creating musical work and installations for exhibition. In 2009, he started the group Open Reel Ensemble, which manipulates and plays reel-to-reel tape recorders. The group is involved in a wide range of activities including concert performances, DVD/CD and book publishing, art installations and providing music for movies and catwalk shows. Recently it has begun an ambitious orchestral project using 20 reel-to-reel tape recorders. Wada also works for the Braun Tube Jazz Band project, which plays CRT monitors as instruments and has performed in various locations around the world. Recently, Wada has provided music for ISSEY MIYAKE’s Paris Collection for 6 consecutive times. His latest project is called “Electronicos Fantasticos!” for which he is to build humongous radio wave towers and to create electronic musical instruments, orchestra and strange festival using used home electronics with the participants.” from Ei Wada’s website.
