Music + City = Musicity
Musicity is a music platform from the UK that links music and place to create a completely new city experience. The British Council launched the Musicity Tokyo in March 2012 to coincide with the major arts festival “Roppongi Art Night”.
Listening points are set up where you can hear original music composed by artists from Japan and the UK around the theme of various locations. Enjoy the exclusive tracks along with the cityscape and ambience of Tokyo that inspired the artists to create them.
