Boycott Rhythm Machine Versus Live 2012

Ryuichi Sakamoto and veteran experimental muso Yoshihide Otomo will be getting into the ring for an unrehearsed bout of musical pugilism at Korakuen Hall, a venue more accustomed to hosting boxing and pro-wrestling matches. It's the most high-profile gig to date in the Boycott Rhythm Machine series, a very occasional string of concerts that invite musicians from disparate scenes to get together for an improvised session. The 2012 show also promises a face-off between turntablist DJ Kentaro and tape deck manipulators the Open Reel Ensemble, though the weirdest showdown may well be between leftfield rapper Shing02 and hip hop pioneer turned TV personality Seiko Ito. There'll also be a guest appearance from Sotaisei Riron's Etsuko Yakushima, and a warm-up set by drummers Muneomi Senju and Masatsugu Hattori.
