This initiative aims to promote the extraordinary work of Filipino composer José Maceda through an international online broadcast of ‘Cassette 100’ which was originally filmed as part of 2019 The Performing Arts Meeting (TPAM) in Yokohama, Japan. The original performance featured 100 volunteer participants while playing tapes of folk instrumental.  

The performances and voices are choreographed and directed by Sachiko Higashino and Toshio Kajiwara, originally programmed by Aki Onda.
