[#KeepgoingTOGETHER] Vol. 22 / Miyuji Kaneko “Music Delivery”

Miyuji Kaneko |Pianist

Impressions Gained through Online Activities 

In the past, as a pianist and a classical musician, I had to concentrate on my daily concert life such as playing on live performances, recording CDs and performing in TV or Radio programs. I personally tried to reach the social network as much as I can, however had no time to grow up my online concert activities. Now, due to COVID-19, all of my booked concerts were cancelled, and got plenty of time to prepare and provide new performances on the internet.



Utilization and Development of Online Live Streaming for Upcoming Activities

In the future, I believe that we all have to concentrate more and more on online activities. For us musicians, via live performances, we are only able to reach people who came and visited the concert hall on the same day. But if we use the internet, we can send our music to all human beings across the World, any time, anywhere.



Efforts to Make This Program Different from Previous Online Projects 

Comparing to previous music videos, I really had to focus on my program. How to select composers, pieces, how to interpret, how to express and how to perform the music. The concert could not be too sad, could not be too exciting, could not be too dark. It has to be comfortable to all people in all kind of situations.
