Yasunao Tone

Yasuanao Tone was a weird artist to end on. His work is like no other that we have seen. He is a Japanese artist who was part of the Fluxus movement in the 1960’s. He participates in noise music, and is known for his musical work which uses unconventional techniques. For one of his albums, he damaged audio CD’s and used the discs to create new pieces. He has been awarded many grants for his pieces as well as fellowships in performance/emerging


While I understand why many enjoy his work, and why it is art. I personally do not like it. I appreciate the technique that goes into making his work, and the process, but actually sitting down and listening to it is something that I cant bring myself to do.
