Space Musical Instruments – Cosmical Seeds
A pair of musical instruments suitable for weightlessness was selected by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to represent the theme of Cultural and Artistic Utilization of the International Space Station (ISS/Kibo). Ａ metal artist, So Negishi, and Ayako Ono developed the musical instruments together since 2009. The instruments were successfully launched on October 31, 2011. A NASA astronaut operated and played the instruments on board the ISS on February 10, 2012. Two pieces of music were used as background music, and it was a kind of collaboration. One is the special edition for the instruments, named “Dream Starts” composed by a Scandinavian artist, Jaakko Saari; and another is two mins edition of “Kiyoraka na sora” composed by an acclaimed pianist, Akira Takahashi. The astronaut, played with the latter music many times for 15 minutes during lost communication and improved his skills, beyond the procedure manual. Additionally, free play was more interesting than prepared procedure to see.
