Darrot set up a theatrical stage tracing the old minka house in one of the classrooms of a closed school. A white piece of cloth representing the symbolic snow of the region was hung from the ceiling while automated toy animals played "music" composed based upon interviews to local people and stories.
※ The artwork will be open during Echigo-Tsumari Art Field 2019 Summer from Saturday 10 - Sunday 18 August 2019.
The band members include polor bear, yukiotoko, cat and octobus.
The CD covers 24 pieces of music.
From 1 to 12 are in English while 13-24 are in Japanese.
All music are somewhat familiar to your ears.
You can try listening some of them from ≫here.
The CD is only available from a museum shop at KINARE or
Echigo-Tsumari On-line Shop.
