Creating the Music for the Lexus International Gallery Aoyama in Tokyo

Here’s a 2008 video of Japanese composer Masato Hatanaka and his efforts to create the ambient music playing at the Lexus International Gallery Aoyama in Tokyo:

Admittedly, the video and the concept are a little out of the ordinary — but it also displays the uniqueness that I would expect at a Japanese Lexus dealership. Here are some details on the sound environment installation, taken from a old press release:

With an exterior that blends with its city surroundings and an interior highlighted by a novel sculpture that extends vertically into a vaulted space, Lexus International Gallery Aoyama achieves a spatial design indicative of the upscale feeling that is Lexus. Especially designed for this space (by Yamaha Corporation) is a sound environment that integrates indirect sound and beam-forming technologies aimed at allowing visitors to forget the hustle and bustle outside.

I tried to find photos of the exhibit, but with no luck — would love to have seen this.
