Kishi Bashi with Chamber Orchestra
Part of Chapman WWII Japanese-American Incarceration Memory Project
Kishi Bashi performs music from his new film, Omoiyari, with a chamber orchestra. "Omoiyari," Japanese for compassion towards others, is the lens through which the multi-instrumentalist-singer-composer, in both his film and music, explores how empathy and the lack of it has played key roles in our modern quest for social equality and sustainable society. As part of the event, the film will screen following the concert. Kishi Bashi's appearance is part of Musco Center's 'Collective Memory' topic-based performance series.
“Soulfully builds complex, layered sounds into pocket symphonies.”
