Art, Sound, Science — "Shall We Buruburu?"

A video plays...
As we watch and listen together, what words come to mind?
What sounds do you imagine hearing?
Kyoto University's Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) welcomes you to a special event in the heart of the city. Part art, part science, part performance, and nothing like you've ever seen or heard. Join us to burn off some rainy season heat and humidity!
