This concert consists of two parts.

The first part: Koon Ten Duet: Yukino Nono – butoh dance & Yoichiro Kita – laptop + trumpet

“Ko” means “light and dance”. “On” means “the sound”. “Ten” means “the sky”. Ko-on-ten is a combination of Yukino Nono, Japanese dancer and Yoichiro Kita – a musician using an original D-soft “Ninja Jockey” trumpet with electronic effects.
