The environment around our lives is full of different types of invisible particles flying in the air, particles such as radio waves and radiation. When they bump into something, they are so fine that they do not emit a sound which humans can catch. But if these substances were as big as bouncy balls, what kind of reverberating sounds would we perceive in our living space? We created this performance to try and discover the nature of those sounds.

Guest dancer: Erika Kitaoka, Aiko

Two dancers manipulate hundreds of super balls to resonate TWS Shibuya. Does they make roaring or faint sound?

"Monolith" was formed on the creation of an exhibition called "Ocean Line" in Atlia, Kawaguchi City Art Gallery in July 2012. The duo is made up of Tamura Hiroshi (tamuranmusic) and Yamada Beyond. Under the concept of "NEWBGM", they work on sound art projects to express what scarcely but crucially separates two things, like a layer of thin skin or two sides of the same coin.
