Participation-oriented concert: PLAY? – Amuse? Make Music?

Shuta Hasunuma, Tetsu Umehara, Miyasaka Ryotaro


To move the body and mind (PLAY), it may be to make a sound (PLAY)?

Three musicians, Shuta Hasunuma, Tetsu Umehara, and Ryotaro Miyasaka, who have been developing various musical activities, will hold a concert in which anyone can participate.
This concert is an opportunity to PLAY together using the ""sounds"" that abound in our daily lives. You can use your own body to make sounds, listen to someone else's sounds, and maybe even touch the sounds. Adults and children do not need to be able to play a musical instrument. We hope that this concert will provide an opportunity for those who cannot hear, those who cannot see, and those who use wheelchairs to think about themselves, about others, about their bodies, and about their minds.
The venue is Shibuya Parco's Rooftop Park. There are no steps to get to the venue. Anyone can participate in this concert, so please come and play as if you were going out to play.

This is a concert that anyone can ""PLAY"" together, including those who cannot play instruments, do not have a sense of rhythm, adults, children, those who cannot hear, those who cannot see, those who use wheelchairs or have difficulty moving their bodies, and those who have difficulty getting out and about.
Performers who create music by eye input also participate remotely.
