Marconi's eternal tone cloud 

music video

"Taken from ‘The Sampler As A Time Machine’, the richly textured single ‘Marconi’s Eternal Tone Cloud’ is inspired by Lia’s interest in time travel and how the human brain perceives time from moment to moment; how people can experience overlapping time; and how we interact with our past and future through memory and imagination." - Kaltblut

TASOGARE

documentary

"The film passes like a series of meditative breaths, each sequence drawing us into a world where adventurous music and traditional worship can coexist in tranquility." - Tiny Mix Tapes

 

Electronic music producer and solo artist Lia Mice travels to Tokyo to discover why the Buddhist monks at Komyo-Ji Temple host an experimental music festival at twilight.

Several times a year the Komyo-Ji Temple resident monks host TASOGARE Festival - a one-day event of experimental and electronic music. The headlining act: chanting with the monks. 

For the 30th edition of TASOGARE Festival, London based electronic artist/producer LIA MICE returned to Tokyo for her 3rd performance at TASOGARE Festival. Fascinated with the old-time Japanese yokai ghost/folk stories that inspired the festival’s name (tasogare is an old Japanese word that has a double meaning: 'twilight' and ‘who are you?’), Lia explores the origins of this obscure and unique event; the monks’ relationship with electronic and experimental music; and the musical nature of the Shin-Buddhism chant-based meditation.

Set under the soft indigo light of the Tokyo twilight, TASOGARE is at once a post-modern observational ethnography and an impressionistic eulogy to the spaces in between.

CREDITS:  All roles by Lia Mice except translation by Masami Shibamoto, Makiko Jane Takahashi & Shoukei Matsumoto. Filmed on location at Komyo-Ji Temple, Tokyo, 9 April 2016 and Honshu, Japan, 23-13 April 2016.

 

Our Heavy Heart

music video

"The album opens with a moody number called “Our Heavy Heart,” which features throbbing bass with a somewhat menacing texture and a melancholic hum that sounds straight out of a David Lynch movie... Mice recently released a video for “Our Heavy Heart” that shows her walking around Lyon, posting signs about a missing pet snake. But we see her posed with this snake while she sings the choruses, reminding us of the happy times you might take for granted until something — like a pet — is lost." - Love Is Pop

Official video for "Our Heavy Heart" from I Love You LP, 2014. Directed by David Paour. Shot on location in Lyon, France.
