Ensembles Asia / Asian Meeting Festival

The Asian Meeting Festival (AMF) was started by Otomo Yoshihide in 2005 with the hope of promoting a robust creative interaction between Japanese and other Asian musicians. With the festival nestled within the auspices of Ensembles Asia*, and with the inclusion of Yuen Chee Wai from Singapore and Hong Kong-based dj sniff as curators since 2014, AMF has evolved into one of Asia’s foremost experimental, improvisational and noise music festivals. For the 2017 edition, following a tour through Fukuoka, Kyoto and Sendai, AMF will hold its finale in Sapporo at SIAF. In Sapporo, the Asian musicians will be joined by local musicians, as well as special guests Haino Keiji and Oren Ambarchi. They will perform in various combinations and collaborations over the two-day period. Workshops to understand experimental music are also scheduled in July.

*A project by the Japan Foundation Asia Center and P3 art and environment to spread the new potentialities in music to the world.
