The instrument “Kerberos” (the same name as the “hellhound” who guarded the entrance to the underworld in Greek mythology) uses electricity and air pressure to perform “Zombie music.” However, it takes time to accumulate enough air, and because it is made with a large coffin-like box, it does not easily move forward.
In the “Electrical Parade of the Dead,” you do not merely listen to Zombie Music; because carrying “Kerberos” is a shared activity, it presents everyone who takes part with a sight somewhat different from those of the everyday. After each parade, there will be a gathering to talk about it. Following the final event March 1st, the food artist Eat&Art Taro will present a special carnival party. Nothing fancy; think of it in the same way you would think of taking the dog out for a walk.
* Zombie Music: Not quite human, and not quite robot. Computer controlled “fingers” play automatic music on recorders whose sound is caused by an air compressor.
