Jury Selections

YOICHI OCHIAI × JAPAN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA VOL.3

Japan Philharmonic Orchestra / OCHIAI Yoichi / EBIHARA Hikaru / EBARA Yoko / WOW / NARUSE Kazuhiro / TBWA\HAKUHODO Team

Multimedia production [Japan]

Reimagines the orchestra to let a wide range of people enjoy classical music through the power of technology. Sound-Free Concert 2019 created new ways to enjoy sounds through devices converting music into vibration and color, and actions such as hitting a typewriter. The Crossing Un-Orchestra creates possibilities for sensitive listening to classical music with analog-digital, natural-industrial, subject-object, and Western-Japanese mixtures.
