Artist: AI + PARTY
GANGU is an artwork based on the concept of toy cars, created together by a human artist and an AI that has intelligence equivalent to a 5-year old child.
Outline of exhibition
The 1988 movie ”AKIRA” is considered to be the gold standard of animated films. The movie’s music was composed by Shoji Yamashiro of Geinoh Yamashirogumi. In addition to being a composer, Yamashiro is also a scientist. His achievements in fieldwork around the world (academic research) were utilized throughout the soundscape of “AKIRA” (music, dialog, and sound effects).
We produced a unique sound system for this exhibition that features six speakers designed by Yamashiro to reproduce high-resolution sound, including high frequencies up to 96 kHz. It allows guests to truly feel the powerful soundscape of “AKIRA”.
