THE HEART OF FUYUKI YAMAKAWA

"I started using my heart in my performances around 2002-2003."
"I'm more interested in the vibration produced by sound than in music."

"I realized that art was an imported concept, rooted in Western culture, and suddenly I saw my colleagues creating works that conformed to imported ideals. I began to ask myself, what do I have that is mine? Another reason was that my band broke up when everyone started working after we graduated. I started working as an assistant at the same university and decided to start a one-man band. The heart became my drum and I sang and played the heartbeat/drum."

About the audience: "I just want them to resonate, to physically understand that they are alive. When they hear my heartbeat, they feel their own heartbeat. Once they understand that, I don't care if they laugh, cry or meditate. It depends on the audience."
