After her debut experimental multi-media project Yugenism: Animated Soundscapes of the Japanese Sublime sold out across London, soundscapist and composer Verity Lane is back with an exciting new project entitled Japanese Sandscapes: The Story of Mt. Fuji.

With an international debut performance by up-and-coming Japanese sand artist Akifumi Kasanuki, this collaborative project aims to create elements of the Japanese sublime in the form of audio-visual installations that depict the famous Japanese story of The Bamboo Cutter. To compliment Kasanuki’s live sand art display, acclaimed Japanese instrumentalist Kaho Aso will be bringing Lane’s music to life, with audio experiences scored for the kotsuzumi drum, Japanese flute and dance.

Event supported by The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation & Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation

“We are a street food stall that sell Gyudon and Yasaidon (vegan version), a popular Japanese dish of thinly sliced beef, cooked in a sauce served on a bed of rice.  We also do a vegan version, we call Yasaidon, which is our own creation. We substitute the beef for fried tofu, mushrooms and daikon radish, which is then cooked in a vegetarian Dashi (stock).”
