Stay, create and present in th heart of Tokyo
Will August Park
Residence Period: 2022.10.04-2022.10.31
My music expresses the emotional landscape of particular times and places and my connection to
them. At 3331, I plan to immerse myself and connect with the metropolis that is Tokyo. Sensitive to
how COVID-19 is shifting our responses to our environment and communities, I want to explore
musical themes and techniques relevant to Tokyo's current artistic landscape(s). Leading up to my residency, I am writing pieces of music that connect to my experience in Los Angeles at this time.
