about karesansui surrounding
Kare-san-sui surrounding is a project formed by various artists — such as musicians, engineers, programmers, designers, etc. — aiming to offer a relationship between ‘people’ and ‘sound’ from a new perspective. We liken the handling of sound to the garden-making art of Karesansui, and apply cutting edge multimedia technology and originally developed audio processing technology to create an artificial garden of sound within public spaces.
