Tetuzi Akiyama

This concert was just an one paragraph blurb in Rave, but 4 words caught my attention.
knife-play guitar style
Yes, apparently he plays his guitar with a knife. A steak knife, if you're being particular.

Tetuzi Akiyama is a Japanese improv instrumentalist, predominantely on the guitar. The Queensland Institute of Modern Art is bringing him out to play a free show on Thursday the 1st of July. It's part of MicroMONO9, which is their sound/performance music program.

It's free. It starts at 7pm. It's in room 40 of IMA. And it's a talented man with a guitar. And a knife. I don't know how I won't be there.

Videos of him (knife-less, unfortunately) can be seen here
