PARALLAX

 

The perspectives viewed by over eight million commuters daily on the Yamanote Line, Tokyo are synchronised with originals scores by hip hop producer DJ BAKU (Disc Defence Disc) and lyrics by MC Taboo (MSC).

The lyrics and musical score correlate directly with view, highlighting the changing cityscape, spatial politics and issues pertaining to public life between three individual stations in central Tokyo.
