YOU CAN WATCH THE MUSIC CONCERT ON THE INTERNET.
Ryuichi Sakamoto, the world's famous musician contributed to YMO and the main theme of the movie "Last Emperor," and Toshio Iwai, an interactive media artist, will play great music with audiences on the Internet.
We have decided the experiment of broadcasting will be held on the schedule -- in the evening on 16th of December, 1996 (JST)
Through this experiment, we expect to show the power of video/audio broadcasting with commercial available software, and to examine how it works over the AI3 environment. The audio and video will be fed to Indonesia and Hong Kong from Japan. This event was designed as an official domestic event in Japan presented by Internet 1996 World Expo, however, we achieved to get it also for Asian countries. You may get more information about the concert from http://japan.park.org/Japan/1216/index-e.html
