Sound of Desires originated as a recording of a collaborative public performance with percussionist, John Brennan. The Director, Jinushi talks with the percussionist about desires, and films how his performance changes throughout the conversation. The result becomes a kind of documentary recording of the process of musical collaboration and of emerging desire.

Sound of Desires was performed at Western Front, Vancouver, Canada and commissioned by LIVE International Performance Art Biennale in 2017.

Video installation consists of three angles : wide shot including Jinushi and Brennan from the point of view of the audience, medium shot by the Jinushi’s camera, close-up shot of Brennan’s hands and drums. This three images are synchronized, and the video shows whole performance in one-shot without editing.
