In collaboration with Nippon Television Europe (NTVE), TodaysArt has created a program that focuses on Japan. After composing a number of musical pieces Ei Wada (b. 1987) subsequently switched his attention to outmoded electrical appliances, interested in their supposed obsolescence. He recontextualized and modified them to be played as musical instruments. In addition to ‘Open Reel Ensemble’, Ei Wada presents his solo ‘Braun Tube Jazz Band’, a unique audiovisual performance in which he uses his body and 12 old CRT televisions. He uses the electromagnetic field of the TVs to change light into sound and manipulates the sounds by turning the TVs into percussion instruments and synthesizers. Braun Tube Jazz Band won the 'Art Division Excellence Prize' at the 13th Japan Media Arts Festival.
