Light Projection Ceremony was a interactive art installation in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture Japan in April and May 2012.
Projecting audio responsive light onto a tsunami damaged 130 year old church building, on a small island in the mouth of the Kitakami River.
Over the month we organised 3 performances by various musicians, and also the installation was open to the public 6 nights a week for anyone to sing, play music, shout or dance. This is one such night of improvisation.
17th April 2012 - Mina, a butoh & contemporary dancer from Kyoto came on the request of a local Taiko group for one night and they improvised 2 performances. This is the second of the 2 sessions. The Taiko sound created light via 3 projectors around the building and Mina was illuminated by this light.
The camera was unfortunately just a handy cam and set to automatic, so some amount of the footage is out of focus for extended periods, but it still gives a good sense of the performance of Taiko and dance.
There is an error with on the Taiko members names currently which will be fixed soon. see below for corrects credits of the artists involved
