TWO – in transit Hara Museum

Music Cinema (2021)
Tomoko Mukaiyama & Reinier van Brummelen

TWO – in transit Hara Museum is the second in a series of collaborations between Tomoko Mukaiyama, a pianist/artist/director who continues to create challenging performances and installations around the world, and Reinier van Brummelen, a leading Dutch cinematographer. The series, which weaves together music and visual stories, started in January 2020 with ONE, a 3D-mapped outdoor concert at the Cathedral of Mérida in Mexico. This second performance will be produced, filmed and edited with the Hara Museum as the stage and then streamed in early January, to coincide with the closing of the museum in 2021.
