TEAM: Akane Imai, Japan, The University of Tokyo

The aim of this proposal is to explore a possibility of the inclusive setting of a night club where people could take more initiative to purely experience music and space.

Club Phantom is totally different from a conventional club. It is situated in some urban context such as an underpass, where it tends to be dismissed during a day. At night however, a temporary outdoor disco appears like a phantom out of an abandoned void.

There is no DJ, ordinary dancing room, bars, and even an entrance at club phantom.

This space is a hyper – inclusive urban structure where people could spontaneously drop by and embrace music and lighting experience, which is composed / created by their own body motion. A body flow is received as signals by motion sensors embedded in columns and floors which structures a 3D frame defined by invisible ray. Signals are converted into a music and lighting effect immediately. Some characteristic movements of specific dancing styles are translated into a series of tunes and lighting effect. Therefore, people can play between prediction and total randomness. This huge musical instrument makes it possible to remix a spontaneous physical motion into an experience.
