8K short drama The Chorus with music by Shimizu to be broadcast March 17-25 on NHK BS 8K

Making the most of ultra-high definition technology - visually and aurally - this experimental film features a cross-section view of the lives lived simultaneously on three floors of a Tokyo apartment block. Shimizu recorded part of the soundtrack on saxophone in the 14-story atrium of the NHK STRL with 19 microphones to capture the crispness of the lower floor sound together with the warmth of the long reverb.
