Tokyo City Symphony: A 3D Journey

The Tokyo City Symphony created an elaborate 3D projection to celebrate the 10 year celebration of Roppongi Hills – one of Japan’s largest integrated property developments, located in the Roppongi district of Minato, Tokyo. The projection is based on a 3D map built on a 1:1000 scale of the district. On the website for this 3D projection, you can interact with various motifs of the city – “Futuristic City,” “Rock City,” and a traditional Japanese “Beauty of Nature” motif – by pressing the keys on your computer keyboard, as if playing the piano.

Why I’m Curious:

I think this project speaks for itself. We’ve seen 3D mapping before, but this takes it to a more interactive level. First of all, at 1:1000, the scale is impressive. What’s most remarkable is the customizable musical experience you can create by interacting with it on your keyboard. You can also share your sound creations via Facebook, Twitter and G+. The linear YouTube version is beautiful, but it’s certainly worth it to play with the real version.
