Toy Symphony activities come to Japan and Mexico this Fall after wildly
successful tours in the U.S. and Europe.
In Japan, Hyperscore workshops will be given in November at the
CAMP center for children,
technology and the arts in Kyoto, Japan. In addition, Tod Machover will
give a keynote presentation on Toy Symphony at the prestigious
World Cultural Forum in Kyoto
on November 24th, followed by a presentation of the new Hyperscore
compositions created by Japanese children at CAMP.
Also in November, Tod Machover, Mary Farbood and Hugo Solis will train
mentors at the
Papalote Children's Museum
in Mexico City in Toy Symphony activities. Children in
Mexico City will work on new compositions in Hyperscore, culminating in
a gala concert on January 28, 2004 to mark the opening of Papalote's
new wing and "Dome" performance center.
