Asian Improv aRts Midwest presents: “Tradition & Diaspora Series II” celebrating the 2017 APAHM$10A unique and experimental collage of Asian American musicians that contribute their own distinctive style expressing the blended state of tradition and diaspora
The Reduction Quartet
Tatsu Aoki originally conceived Reduction as a creative response to the popular
taiko drumming stripped of its musical elements. Reduction argues for upholding
the beauty in taiko performance and for its connectivity to aesthetics and musicality.
The Reduction Quartet is the musical extension of this philosophy, members from
the current Miyumi Project: Tatsu Aoki, Edward Wilkerson, Jamie Kempkers, and
Kioto A. , synthesize and weave their vibe as the “Tradition and Diaspora” series continues.
