Zotto – A Supernatural Immersive Adventure
The Japanese Arts Network (JA-NE) partnered with Stories of Solidarity, Western Sound Alliance, Filmmaker Bruce Tetsuya, Producers Courtney Ozaki and Leah Podzimek, Community Organizer Joie Ha, and local Denver music, dance, and visual artists to bring you this chilling, or ‘zotto’ (in Japanese), supernatural immersive and multi-sensorial journey.
I worked as a writer, producer and sound editor on the project.
As part of a two month slate of virtual programming created by the Japanese Arts Network in partnership with McNichols Civic Center and Denver Arts and Venues, I created a binaural video titled, “A Mindful Morning” featuring opera singer and actor Margaret Ozaki-Graves.
In partnership with artist Becky Wareing-Steele, I launched a collaborative art project translating individuals’ memories of spaces they’ve occupied in the past into auditory and visual installations in the present. We exhibited this work at TEDx Mile High: Imagine, Denver Art Museum’s Untitled series and at SoundScene 2020.
