Japan’s renowned artist produce video installation that visualizes the music of Steve Reich

Seitaro Yamazaki, art director at Seitaro Design Co., Ltd., presented his video installation ““MUSIC FOR THE MARGINS” #01 STEVE REICH /COUNTERPOINT ” in Tokyo on Wednesday, March 31. Released as the first event at the art festival “MEET IN TOKYO”, Seitaro presented  the art  as a homage to composer Steve Reich. Fusing music and art together, Seitaro’s installation commemorates 85 years since the birth of Reich who he praises as a master of modern music.

Seitaro’s large-scale video installation consists of a centered screen with two large LED panels  on the left and right side. The project visualizes the music of Steve Reich and expresses the relationship of sound and time. Seitaro says “Every piece of music has a melody. Between the grains of sound making the melody, there is an infinite abyss of sound. The world of sound that exists between the grains and cannot be captured in a notation. The infinite world of sound existing between the grains is dynamically visualized by a digital program. ” . the center screen of the three screens represents the time axis, which Counterpoint presently follows, and  accompanied by the two panels on the sides that reflect time that “may have existed.” .He launched the project to seek possibilities to express the relationship of “sound” and “(overlapping, folded, or blended) multiple time, existing within possibilities ”.He has pursued visualization of myriad “expressions that might have been possible or time that might have existed”  “vanished away without being selected for some reasons”. The piece marks the first in Seitaro’s series “Music for the Margins”

Seitaro says “As a contemporary music fan, I am grateful to be able to work with Steve Reich, who I had longed for, in this way, and for such a strange fate, and I will continue to express various arts through MEET IN TOKYO. I am very much looking forward to the exchange of music.”

Of future work, Seitaro hopes to expand his work from Japan to the U.S. and Europe. He mentions his studio’s decision to open a new base in New York City and future plans for exhibitions across Europe.
