Deep Space Music brings together sound and image, music and computer animation in a way that transforms the projection space into a setting for intimate experiences. In it, Japanese pianist Maki Namekawa plays a program of works by three visionary composers who are also regarded as great thinkers. Her piano concert musically celebrates the 60th birthday of Ryuchi Sakamoto (JP) and Philip Glass’ (US) 75th, and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Cage (US).

In order to provide Ms. Namekawa with latitude for spontaneous improvisation, with Candas Sisman’s and Deniz Kader’s interactive visual art direction, the performance was supported by Plato Media Lab team Zeynep Nal, Bager Akbay, Ismail Kasarci, Osman Koc and Kaan Kaner. The team worked live in real time, though, in doing so, they had recourse to a repertoire of prepared graphic elements that are the outcome of an intensive process of encounter with the respective pieces of music.

The project offered an immersive experience which was associated with Maki Namekawa’s abstract notes, place’s atmosphere and enchanted the audience.
