Satoshi Morita holds a bachelor’s Degree from Tokyo Zokei University and a Master’s Degree from the University of Arts Berlin, where he has specialized in Sound Studies.
Morita participated in many new media art-oriented exhibitions, such as paraflows, CyberArts 08 – Prix Ars Electronica, LAB 30, Kristallrauschen, Höhlerbiennale 2007, x sounds, 3. Berliner Kunstsalon, sonambiente berlin, Gropiusstadt Kunstprojekt, Sounddesign for performance project, Sounddesign for theatre, etc.
Morita’s work deals with a perceptual issue focusing on sonic experience, not only by listening to the sound but also through the vibration of sound. He combines auditory and tactile perception in the form of sound installation and sonic objects. The work “Klangkapsel / Sound Capsule,” which won Honorary Mention from the Prix Ars Electronica 2008 in the category Digital Musics, realized extremely intense bodily listening. The audience is invited to slide into the full-size capsule. Lying down in the capsule, you are entirely covered with a sonic experience through loudspeakers and transducers. The combination of auditory and tactile sonic perception enables us to build a new imaginary and physical space, cooperating together on a very personal level of each audience.
