Friday, 11 March.
Although its still the beginning of March, I could feel spring was just around the corner.
There were a nice breeze, so I decided to head to the venue by foot.

Downtown was bustling because its a Friday. I saw a long line outside of The Hoxton.
Inside was filled with the sound of deep bass that created a comfortable atmosphere.
The space filled up quickly as people entered one after another.

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER appeared on the stage.
His sounds made the audience go silent.
His voice became the notes, he overlapped the notes and created the works.
There was will in his sounds which transferred to our bodies, bones and brains.

His music was like a wild animal so we couldn’t expect whats coming next.
It was addictive, our brains were paralyzed little by little.
I got the impression that the audience appreciated art works and not just performances.
However at the same time I felt the audience temperature rising.

The night ended with his encore.
There was condensation on the windows, which goes to show it was a good night.

New Album “Garden of Delete” was released in November 2015.

3月11日金曜日
3月初旬とはいえ、トロントでも春の訪れを感じられるようになってきた。
風も心地よく、会場まで歩いて向かった。

金曜の夜で賑わうダウンタウン、The Hoxtonの看板の下には一際人々が列を成していた。
会場内は重低音がバンバン響くのに、音が良く整えられていて、後ろまで気持ちいい音で満ちていた。
新たなオーディエンスは止めどなくエントランスから流れ込み、決して小さな会場ではないのに超満員になる。

ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVERがステージに上がった。
音が人々を黙らせる。
彼の声も音となり、折り重なった音は作品となる。
彼の音楽は意志を持ち、私たちの体を、骨を、脳を揺さぶる。

野生動物のような音楽で先が読めない。
だんだん脳内が麻痺していくような中毒性。
オーディエンスはアクトを見ているというより、芸術品を鑑賞しているような印象を受けた。
ただし確実に人々の体温が上がっていくのを私は感じた。

一度アンコールに応え、公演は終わった。
外気との温度差で窓には結露が出ていた。

New Album “Garden of Delete” was released in November 2015.
