Cementing Melbourne and Japan’s close musical ties is RISING’s Japan in Focus program. The Forum hosts iconic pop experimentalists from Tokyo’s mid-’90s, “cut-and-paste” Shibuya-kei scene, and a seminal percussionist from the ‘80s Avant Garde. Over at Max Watt’s there’s Tokyo doom rock veterans, and atmospheric techno.
