Music should be appreciated by its quality, not by any form of quantitative measure, at least when it comes to personal enjoyment. But thanks to social distancing, size matters (when it comes to music).
For this year’s DESIGNART TOKYO 2020 event earlier this October, design activists NOSIGNER created an oversized music sheet as an interactive installation, with the hopes of bringing social harmony. A simple and creative solution to separate each playable note by 1.8 metres apart, allowed for Yokohama Minatomirai Hall at the entrance of DESIGNART TOKYO 2020 to be animated by people safely making music.
Although choosing French composer and pianist Erik Satie’s Gymnopédies No.1 as the musical piece of choice may not have stirred up a rave, it at least allowed for a creative outlet in a public space while keeping everyone safely entertained.
