The Missing Peace Opens in LA on 6/11
Ryuichi Sakamoto has composed, performed, and created a new sound installation entitled sonic mandala for The Missing Peace: Artists Consider the Dalai Lama, which opens to the public on Sunday, June 11th at the Fowler Museum of Cultural History at the University of California Los Angeles, and runs through September 6th at the Fowler.

The Missing Peace is a multi-media art exhibition that brings together 88 well-respected artists, representing more than 25 countries. With the full life of the Dalai Lama as inspiration, the intention for this project is to shift the world's attention towards peace.

"Peace starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities." - His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, 1989 Nobel Laureate for Peace.

In addition to Sakamoto's sonic mandala, other artists contributing to the installation include: Laurie Anderson, Richard Avedon, Richard Gere, and Sebastiao Salgado.

All works in the exhibition have been donated by the artists and will be auctioned to raise funds for the peace initiatives of the Dalai Lama Foundation (DLF) and the Committee of 100 for Tibet (C100), the co-sponsoring organizations. The Dalai Lama, who has met with The Missing Peace organizers on several occasions, supports the project and will be lending a work of art from his personal collection.

Sonic Mandala Art Direction was handled by Norika Sora(sky) for KAB America, Design Direction was provided by Todd Wood of Nokia Design, and programming and system design was completed by Fernando Aponte. The creation of Sakamoto's sonic mandala was made possible with the generous assistance of Artek. Founded in 1935 by four young Finns, led by the visionary modern architect Alvar Aalto, Artek is renowned as one of the most innovative contributors to modern design. Additional information is available at www.artek.fi.

After it's run at the Fowler Museum, The Missing Peace moves on to Chicago's Loyola University Museum of Art, and New York's Rubin Museum of Art.

Additional information about the project is available at www.tmpp.org.


Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto Insen '06 Dates Launch in Porto
Porto, Portugal is the debut of this summer's tour of the in-demand Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto project with their debut 2006 performance on June 11th (at 10:00 PM, a manageable 2 hours after Portugal's World Cup Debut)!

Frieze Magazine has called the Insen performance .... as thrilling as a virtuoso tightrope walk, and, ultimately, as emotionally pulverising a privilege to witness," so that was reason enough for us to spread the love, and take the Insen tour where it hasn't been before.

After initial dates in Porto and Lisbon, Insen helps kick off Sonar 2006 with two opening night performances on June 15th. After stops in Spain, Holland, Italy, and Austria, the tour concludes with a July 2nd performance at the Roskilde Festival.

Full tour and ticket sale information is available here.
