Highlight 1: “Automatic musical instruments that move with sound and vibration” created by visitors
* MOBIUM “Sound Art Workshop – Let’s make musical instruments that move with sound and wind!” *
MOBIUM, a mobile museum, is a place of expression based on
transportation, based on a large bus. Up until now, we have carried out expressive activities in various places, including exhibitions, music performances, and video screenings. MOBIUM’s production project “YOKOHAMA
HACK
As a workshop held as part of “CAMP”, this time we focused on environmental information such as the wind and sunlight at Yamashita Pier, and based on Yokohama folklore, we created a sound system that moves with external environmental sounds and vibrations such as wind. We will create an automatic musical instrument that physically generates music.
Participants will be given an M5StickC (pre-programmed with a special program that responds to sound and vibration), which is used in STEM education, as a tool kit, and will create their own works at the event venue. If your work is not completed in the workshop, there will be a grace period of two weeks for you to complete it at home and then it will be displayed on or off the MOBIUM bus.
*We plan to provide production support via email or ZOOM for participants who wish to continue their production at home.

Highlight 2: Hands-on workshop “Pixel art experience using iron beads” *Yuka Numata Workshop*
* “Pixel art experience using iron beads: Let’s make pixel fast food!” * At this event, we will be holding a workshop where anyone can easily create wonderful pixel art works using iron beads, using examples of Yuka Numata’s works. It is a content that can be enjoyed by a wide range of people from children to adults.
Yuka Numata, who was born into the digital native generation where the Internet is used on a daily basis, has been engaged in expressive activities that incorporate contemporary times, characteristics, and generational characteristics and transpose them into works. The materials used in the work are children’s toys called iron beads, and through the process of arranging them one by one to create an image, the process of arranging them one by one creates an image that is similar to that seen digitally, suggesting an analog nature, but also creating a three-dimensional image even in two dimensions. We are developing a method of expression in a new dimension that is not original.

About Yamashita Pier
Yamashita Pier has been a place where people, things, and cultures have continued to intersect, connecting the world and Japan since the Meiji Restoration. Yamashita Wharf Shed No. 4, the venue for this event, is also an icon of the era that supported Japan’s high economic growth, and the truss structure that supports the huge frame is a collection of the best of Showa era architectural technology.
