MA work

A strange story from Japan: a particular train line had a higher suicide rate than other train lines. A music specialist found out the that the alarming departure sound of the train psychologically affected people, creating despair or uneasiness. So the train company changed the sound in some stations.

My design aim is to create a product that can change properties between humans and music.
