Keiji Haino in Toronto
An established music prayer icon, Keiji Haino perfromed at Toronto’s Garrison’s on Saturday, June 11 2011. I was his interpreter during his stay. He is quite a character, with a distinct style from head to toe and the way he talks. He went over and over with the earplug issue. He claims that earplugs should not be worn by his audiences because it will only loose the point of why he creates loud sound. They should try to really hear without earplugs and evolve their ears to match the level of his prayer. I personally tried … but my ears are still hurting as I write this entry three days later … See you again Keiji, you rock!!
