[For participants with a hearing impairment]
The body-sensible acoustic device “Huggable Speaker HugMe” (about 20 devices) will be available for participants with a hearing impairment. The device is a pillow-sized and weighed speaker with a body-sensible vibrating system installed. In addition to the sound of instruments, it sends users the same vibration that the performer physically feels when they play the instruments. Therefore, persons with a hearing impairment can feel the sound and melody with their bodies.
If you wish to participate in the workshop with this device, please make sure to purchase “Speaker Seat” ticket at the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Box Office. Please note that the seat will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.
