    Farewell snap shots of Tokyo Shibuya Terminal of Tokyu-Toyoko line with the theremin

    The Tokyu-Toyoko Line is a popular train connecting Shibuya, Tokyo, and Yokohama, Kanagawa.

    As the Line is now being connected to Shinjuku sub-metropolitan line, the terminal station of Shibuya closed on March 15, 2013. The video is showing the last days of the terminal with a sentimental performance by Miquette's theremin and piano. Piano was performed by me with Garritan Personal Orchestra 4 Grand Piano.

    Enjoy.

    Jun - What a beautiful piece - the slide show, the music. The story behind this - It's so difficult when things change. This is going to have such an impact on a lot of people, the closing of this huge, busy terminal. I don't understand how people are going to adapt to the new subway connections. A major change.

    The plaintive, exquisite performance by Miquette is breathtaking, as always. And you certainly have a way of making the GPO piano sound much better than people sometimes give it credit for.

    Thank you so much for posting this for us. The world needs more beautiful art in it, and you're certainly making wonderful contributions.

    Randy,

    Thank you very much for your warm words as always.

    Shibuya, Tokyo, is very familiar area for me so that it is certainly a shock to see the town drastically change. It may take several months for everyone who uses the terminal to get used to the new arrangement.

    Sincerely,

    Very nice, Jun.

    Shibuya is one of the places on my bucket list...provided I actually ever get on a plane again because I don't want to be raped by the TSA.
