Golin (JP/BE) – Friday 26th October / Driv
Rin Suemi, alias Golin, is a singer, producer, classically trained pianist and performance artist born in Tagawa, Japan. An alumni of California Institute of the Arts, her performances are ridden with improvisation, carrying a strong and visceral focus on the body and its possible movements, as well as containing an instant spontaneity that turns her shows into perpetually surprising cinematic experiences. Through her inspiration in folkloric fairy tales and fragmented memories, a variety of layered voices and samples transform her songs into dreamy fantasia.
Golin recently released her debut EP ‘Momo’ on 12” vinyl through Belgian label Midlife Music, and is currently the associated artist of Brussels cultural house Beursschouwburg. As a performer she has worked with artists such as Yoshiko Waki, Ula Sickle and Donna Huanca. Furthermore she composed the soundscape of Helena Dietrich’s installation ‘Elastic Habitat’ that premiered at STUK in Leuven for last November’s Playground festival.
