CARRIAGEWORKS AND ROOM40 PRESENT
Marginal Consort is a Japanese collective improvisation group founded by members of East Bionic Symphonia, an outfit assembled from students of Fluxus artist Takehisa Kosugi’s class at the radical Bigaku school of aesthetics in Tokyo in the ‘70s. Meeting only once each year since their formation in 1996, Marginal Consort discuss nothing before their annual performances, preferring to gather as a collective of independent solos. The start and end times are the only fixed elements in their longform happenings, lasting a minimum of three hours and featuring players spread out across the performance space, distant enough to concentrate on perfecting their own work without distraction. Current artists are Kazuo Imai, Kei Shii, Masami Tada, and Tomonao Koshikawa.
