Opening night performance in Ishinomaki for Light Projection Ceremony, a project for the people of Ishinomaki by Richard Byers and Noriko Shindo, collaborating for the opening night performance with musicians from Tokyo, Ishinomaki and Sendai.
The light projections are real time audio responsive, mapped onto a tsunami damaged church originally built in 1880, and restored and move to it's current location on Nakaze island in the late 1970's. The building amazingly survived 6m tsunami. The project is powered by a 3kW solar energy system installed for 1 month beside the church building.
The musicians used tsunami damaged instruments from Ishinomaki schools and broken parts of the building to create a 25min improvised performance of beauty, rememberance and hope for the future.
A future light created by the voices of Ishinomaki people and those that come to support them in the ongoing rebuilding of the city and lives.
