Haru Nemuri: Midem 2020 performance

par Rupert Bottenberg

The punk poetess of J-pop, Haru Nemuri, gives it her all in solitude for the French trade fair’s virtual edition.

The annual music trade fair in France, Midem (Marché International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale), switched to virtual mode for its 2020 edition this past June, as have most music festivals and industry events. Japan’s Haru Nemuri was among the participating artists at Midem this year, and now shares her performance, a 15-minute melange of premium J-pop, skate-punk, dramatic electro, and passionate poetry, taken from her recent album Lovetheism. Created in solitude, Nemuri’s words and music – effusive pleas for empathy and connection – are nonetheless hypersocial, so there’s something especially poignant about her giving it her all, alone in a room with only cameras for company (and a microphone stand, for air-guitar purposes).
