AQUA TX Series

AQUA TX Series

#Composition / Music Production
We were fully responsible for the music for AQUA's newest refrigerator, the TX series commercial.
We were in charge of all aspects of the music, from composition to performance, with piano as the main instrument.

This commercial was aired on the web in a one-minute version and on TV in a 15-second version.

Even within that limited time, we tried to maximize the appeal of the TX series through the music.

#Gagaku & Japanese Music #For Space #Composition / Music Production
Taro Ishida composed the music for the exhibition "Indigenous Brazilian Chairs: Wildlife and Imagination" held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum in the summer of 2018.
After several presentations to the core members of the project, including Toyojiro Hida, director of the Teien Art Museum, Toyo Ito, architect, and Shinichi Nakazawa, cultural anthropologist, I arrived at the conclusion that the music should be a solo piece on the Gakubiwa, an instrument used in gagaku, the ancient Japanese court music.

SQUARE ENIX Night Walk  “CRYSTAL STORY – Forgotten Forest and Goddess”


#For Space #Produce / Music Director #Composition / Music Production
In 2020, our company was in charge of music direction and composition for "CRYSTAL STORY - Forgotten Forest and Goddess", the first in the Night Walk series from SQUARE ENIX, known for Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy.

The location was Shinjuku Central Park.
The series combines the fantastic lights and sounds of a "night walk" with the experience of a story and the solving of a riddle, which is the key to the progress of the story.

Visitors depart for the forest at night with magic items in their hands, and experience a digital art space with illuminations, sounds, and images, a mysterious riddle-solving experience, and the world of a fantastical story.
