It is an experimental attempt to create a deeper experience by having you taste the charm of “scenery only there” in various parts of Japan and the story related to it with sound. Just as there is a landscape that comes to mind when we hear a sound, just as there is a sound that can be heard when we look at the scenery, the sound takes us everywhere.
Sound TOUR allows you to access music playlists that are compatible with the story of Spotify by placing spotify’s own barcode “Spotify code” in harmony with the real view and loading it with the Spotify app.
It is a new audiovisual experience that transforms “scenery into a scene” by having you taste the scenery and sound at the same time, and invites you to an unforgettable “journey of the heart”.
The first sonic journey begins in Ishikawa Prefecture.
Music producer and artist Matt Cab will be used for this project to sample various sounds overflowing in Ishikawa Prefecture as materials. We produce three new songs by fusing with the familiar sound unique to the local area.
Spotify codes in three locations
Spotify Code 1 “CHOUCHIN (SOUND TOUR)”
Lanterns, traditional local crafts, are used as materials. Installed in Nishichaya District, Kanazawa City.
Spotify Code 2 “SAKURA (SOUND TOUR)”
We use cherry blossom petals as a material that heralds the arrival of spring. Installed in Saigawa, Kanazawa City.
Spotify Code 3 “IKA (SOUND TOUR)”
Squid, a local specialty, is used as a material. Installed at Hane Fishing Port, Noto Town, Fengju County.
*”Spotify Code” is not currently installed.
