Hackathon / Sound of TapBoard
The “Sound of TapBoard” team was formed at the hackathon event “3331α Art Hack Day 2015” by Ippei Yonezawa (tap dancer), Neji Sato (designer), Masaru Mizuochi, Ayaka Ikezawa, and Minoru Nakano (engineer). The collaboration of the five members, each of whom is an individually active professional, led to Sound of TapBoard, an interactive work that fuses reality and technology. It won the Grand Prix at the hackathon in the Product/Service category. In KENPOKU ART 2016, they will be presenting an artwork that hacks tap-dancing using sounds gathered from all over the Kenpoku region, at the former Miwa Junior High School in Hitachi-Omiya.
