The 109 Cinemas Premium Shinjuku

We took charge of creating an artwork for Vision in the main lounge of “the 109 Cinemas Premium Shinjuku”.

This artwork came into being as the self-inspired one out of the artwork presented at Genius Loci in 2021.  The work, “Rhythm And Line,” in 2021 was the one projection-mapped to Franz Liszt’s residence out of respect for this great Magician of Piano.  Just as Liszt fanned a fresh breeze into the then world of music, our work this time is the updated “Rhythm and Line” dedicated to Sakamoto Ryuichi, who was also the musician that stirred up a fresh wind in the modern music world.

In 109 Cinemas Premium Shinjuku, there is provided a lounge special use for viewers an hour before the movie begins.  Its design theme is TIMELESS MODERN to let you enjoy that “moment” and that “sound.”  In the comfortably subdued atmosphere, the 9th and 10th floors will provide you with spacious room studded with intriguing items and impressive artworks invoking the hue of the town of Kabuki-cho in Shinjuku.  The picture content of the Vision in the center of the main lounge will immerse you in the felicity to let you flow in the unhurried time and a fondness for sound, and it was selected as well as to harmonize with the music in the main lounge, “109 Shinjuku-Lounge,” which was composed by Sakamoto Ryuichi ( with the co-composer, Marcus Fisher ).



この作品は、2021年にワイマールで行われたイベントGenuis Lociで発表した作品に自らインスパイアされたものです。
2021年に発表した”Rhythm And Line”は「ピアノの魔術師」といわれ、当時の音楽界に新風を吹き込んだ

“TIMELESS MODERN”をテーマに、落ち着いたトーンの中に新宿・歌舞伎町の街の色を感じさせるような
