In the world of sports, athletes are breaking records in dramatic fashion with the help of cutting-edge science and technology. Why can't the same be done to push musicians into creation of new musical expression? That is the idea behind "Musical Dynaformics", which seeks to understand the bodies and brains of musicians and to optimize training toward a goal of helping them achieve a wide range of creative expression. The man pioneering this new field is Shinichi Furuya, Ph.D., who is also an avid pianist. Watch as Furuya meets with Kyohei Sorita, a promising pianist gaining attention worldwide, to conduct experiments and discuss how Musical Dynaformics could foster the expansion of musical expression.
