Live Experience Demo of Accessible Devices for Music Appreciation for Production Crew Members—Aiming to Create Accessible Stage Shows

  • Music ,
  • Lecture / Symposium

Have you ever looked for any showcases providing opportunities to experience various accessible devices for music appreciation upon introducing those devices for your music events?
Here is one for you to experience two devices: “Bodysonic” (Pioneer Corporation), which provides you with physical sensation from sound converted into vibration, and “MobileConnect” (Sennheiser Japan K.K.), an assistive listening solution you can operate on your smartphone. You will experience them along with the live performance by emerging musicians.


There are a growing need and increasing attention for activities which spotlight the diversity in the arts in recent years. Such movement introduced legislation for promoting art activities for people with disabilities.
At the Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, we provide performing arts production crew with opportunities for information sharing and networking, collaborating with various business organizations. These opportunities are aimed to develop art management personnel who can run socially diverse art activities with higher qualities, and to help cultural facilities and institutions organize fulfilling activities.
