      This is the 4th excerpt from "Sendai Transmissions", a music video I composed and directed in 2013 based on the architecture of the Sendai Mediatheque, a building designed by Toyo Ito. Featuring 8 outstanding musicians from Ensemble N_JP conducted by Adam Vidiksis, the work was commissioned by Chamber Music America and The Graham Foundation. This work brings together music composition, architecture, text, computer animation, cinema and fractal geometry. The video features cinematography by myself and Ryutaro Hakamata, editing and graphics by Nick Lerman and video animation sequences by Chris Landau. "Sendai Transmissions" uses Ito's building as a "text" to create an experience that blurs the lines between architecture, music and cinema. In this sequence we see magnificent long tracking and zoom shots by master cinematographer Ryutaro Hakamata. We also hear the instruments in relation to particular images and movements in a dialog of sound and vision that is at the core of this work.

            This is the first 3+ minutes of "Sendai Transmissions", a music video I composed and directed in 2013 based on the architecture of the Sendai Mediatheque, a building designed by Toyo Ito. Featuring 8 outstanding musicians from Ensemble N_JP conducted by Adam Vidiksis, the work was commissioned by Chamber Music America and The Graham Foundation. This work brings together music composition, architecture, text, computer animation, cinema and fractal geometry.

"Sendai Transmissions" uses Ito's building as a "text" to create an experience that blurs the lines between architecture, music and cinema. In the first 3 minutes we see the facade of the building through the many large trees in front along with words in Japanese (part of a text composed by me appearing throughout the work). We hear the instruments in relation to particular images and movements, setting up the dialog between sound and vision that is at the core of this work.

              Architecture with capital letter A is a short movie, featuring Architects who might have shaped the concept of Architecture itself in the last decade. The movie combines excerpts of their interviews, speeches or documentaries over the last 70 years. This accumulation of scenes expresses somehow the condition of Architecture today - its moments of Glory and Misery.

                    Thom Mayne, FAIA, the 2013 winner of the AIA Gold Medal winner and 2005 Pritzker Prize laureate, sat down (via Skype) with 2013 Pritzker Prize Laureate, Toyo Ito, Hon. FAIA. The SoCal Sculpturalist reached out across the Pacific to talk to Tokyo's post-Metabolist master about his career in design and the changing role of architectural practice in a post-digital age. Mayne describes Ito as an "architect's architect"—and in this exclusive video for ARCHITECT, the two discuss what that means.
