vol.013 / Recommended information
Participatory and Citywide Music Festivals and Programs in Rio de Janeiro!
This is a music festival everybody creates together under the direction of musician Otomo Yoshihide. Musicians and people who have taken part in workshops in advance perform together on Gyoko Street in front of Tokyo Station. Everyone also works with Project FUKUSHIMA! to create a giant furoshiki art installation by covering the ground with furoshiki wrapping cloths gathered from around the country and fastened together.
Creating the music by ourselves, creating the venue by ourselves — this is a festival we all create together.
It’s okay to just come and watch, it’s okay to take part in workshops and come up on stage, and I hope you’ll join us as we create a new kind of festival.
Anything that makes sound is okay.
Lyrics and melody, a song of Tokyo Station we all make together.
Turn Gyoko Street into a festival site!
Help make giant furoshiki to decorate the venue and stage! Artists will be joining in, too!
Kids perform with instruments, adults with non-instruments.
Release your musical urges with improvisational music!
