"A sequel to the cassette "Charivari I" released in 2014!! Like its predecessor, this work is an objection to the world through noise. The content is intended to work on emotions. Side B includes 3 songs recorded in the 80's." - Art Into Life
"Wataru Kasahara continues to gain ardent supporters both in Japan and overseas with his music activities and painting exhibitions at Embudagonn108 and Amenonuvoco.
Wataru Kasahara was born in Japan during the late 1960’s to an Architect father and a creative mother. A self described “shy, sickly kid,” in his youth Wataru enjoyed creating art and listening to nature; along with dissecting and playing with the corpses of insects and small animals he found in his neighbourhood.
In his teens and early 20s Wataru developed an active interest in narcotics and meditation, whilst also creating some of his earliest artistic and musical experiments – Influenced by Surrealism, the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, Viennese Actionism, graffiti, psychology and philosophy.
Since then Wataru has spent his life exploring the avant garde in all its permutations – through art, music and performance. With Wataru’s work touching upon themes of abjection, lust, degradation, rebirth and renewal. Like a flower growing from the decomposing corpse of a young girl." - The Aiether
My music comes from tactile and physiological images. It’s often a scum-textured, mixed sound of noise and musical sound. Some of the melodies, strange words, and fragments of songs are often based on what I heard in my dreams.
In music, too, I think I’m creating a clash scar between fantasy (a musical idea composed and conceived) and reality (lack of playing technique, affirmation of failure, introduction of junk and deformation through collage, etc.)
I hope it will be like an actual “accident”.
Written in this way, it seems that my music follows almost the same process as painting production.
