“ Smelling Concert ”
Music & Aromatherapy space performing live :
The listening of the famous piece of music sounds &
the smelling of aroma imaged
by the tunes will affect on all our 5th senses.
The smelling and listening together is the concept of this concert.
The concert was held in the nice smelling room designed
by the aromatherapy lecturer who we invited.

“ The collaborations of Reading and Music ”
“ The art interwoven by three of the piano, the reading, and the customer ”
“ The musical theme extended from the story and narration”
The fine pieces of literature such as “ Gauche the Cellist ”
by Kenji Miyazawa and
“ Rainbow Fish ” by Marcus Pfister, or the illustrated book,
the picture books and the poetry were
performed by one actor
(a theatrical actor) and
Piano Solo as a reading music play.

The project for the future :
About the performance request
The various projects were done based on the concept to interweave
the classical music concert with
both pursuing the quality of performance and the attractiveness
such as the “ Happiness ” or “ Comprehensibly ”
everyone feel during Pops and Jazz concerts.
The novel concerts, based on the original idea, are well received by
not only classical music fans but also the beginners of classical music.
I’d like to challenge the possibility of piano
through the collaboration with several styles of music.
