Summer Festival

In summer 2020, we won’t be able to travel where we hoped to. Instead, in Summer Festival we celebrate. Inspired by japanese summer festivals, we try to recreate the soundscape and visual themes of night markets and parades of traditional instruments such as taiko, nohkan, shamisen, sho and shakuhachi, etc. In this mysterious celebration along all these mechanical arms and knobs, will the mist finally clear out for a glimpse of fireworks?
