I want to realize once again that people speak quietly and calmly and behave elegantly in urban and public spaces. Through the experience of sound and human behavior, people become sensitive to sound and experience six different tranquilities. And notice the sound. You will notice the sound through a place where you can experiment with human sensibilities and emotions, and a place where you can learn about “art and emotions” or “art and performance”.
