ADACHI Tomomi, born in Kanazawa, Japan in 1972, is performer, composer, sound poet, installation artist, and occasional theater director. He has made several sound installations and original instruments.
ADACHI’s self-made instruments are consists of simple electronic circuit, almost case built in tupperware. They never can make precise pitch, but have good sound and noise, easy to operate and carry and worked by battery.

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on October 24th, 2007:
Can you spot where the person is hiding? Hilarious and sad at the same time…
- Gmail IMAP – Gmail now supports IMAP!
- PlusDeck – Cassette-to-MP3 converter – Still have old cassette tapes worth saving? You can easily convert them to digital formats with plusdeckEX and plusdeck2c. (or just don’t be lazy and hook up your old cassette player to your computer…)
- Chris Gilmour – Beautiful cardboard sculptures, including a typewriter, 12 speed bicycles, a grand piano, a coffee machine, and a life size car.
