Grainy participation, it was an unprecedented “sharing experience”.

I didn’t understand how this project was started, but it looked interesting, so I decided to participate again? I decided to participate again. I remember that I went on a trip to Germany after the performance of the grain orchestra, and during that time, the project progressed very quickly.

To sum it up, I’m really glad I attended! It was so much fun! There is no other fun event like this! I really thought so from the bottom of my heart.

I was very impressed with the grain orchestra performance, but I had exactly the same experience with this grain orchestra. I think it’s a real blessing to be able to have this kind of experience twice a year.

I would like to express my gratitude again to the secretariat, everyone who participated in the event, and especially to the organizers of the two groups in which I performed. Thank you very much.


I entered two groups, “Tweeting Toy Squad” and “Il Suono delle Fiore “Hana no Oto””. Details are here.

In the beginning, there was a plan to do a chapel string cele with a group called “O-human resources ensemble of Grain Valley district”, but unfortunately it was not possible because of the lack of people. But instead, we decided to participate in “Il Suono delle Fiore “Hana no Oto””.


To tell the truth, I had already tasted a sense of accomplishment because I had helped a little with the secretariat of the orchestra, and I had also played the top of the 2nd violin by mistake.

However, after the concert, I felt very sorry to see that I could have a new experience which was different from the orchestra as described below, and moreover, I could see that many people were preparing for this concert with a lot of effort. It is true that I felt very sorry for them.

The people who are making these preparations are the members of the orchestra, in other words, the amateurs. It is true that there are people who have experience in orchestra management and can apply their own work and hobbies, but I was very surprised at the high level of the people who actually worked on the management and administration, as I was last time.

Of course, I think it’s important that we met once in August at the grain orchestra, but even so, most of us have only talked to each other on the timeline of Twitter, so I’m just amazed at the ability to manage such a large group of 100 people at once without any major confusion! It’s a miracle. I think it’s a miracle.


Now, as for the performance, “What? Professional?” There was a full-fledged program that made me think “What? There was also a soothing recorder ensemble, and so on.

What are your thoughts and commentary on this area in real time and even now? It’s being tweeted under the hashtag #22en, so I’ll leave it to you guys.

Here’s a bit of a different perspective on my thoughts.

Of course, the program itself is enjoyable enough, but the most interesting thing about participating this time was that I could “tweet” in real time while I was behind the scenes as a performer.

Last time, I couldn’t tweet during the performance. Of course, I couldn’t tweet when my group was playing, but I could tweet when other groups were playing.

At first, the number of visitors was not so good, so the director of the office told me to “just tweet and cheer up! So we started tweeting at once, and it was a feeling I’ve never experienced before!

The people who were actually at the venue and tweeting, the people who were tweeting from the backstage, the people who were tweeting while watching the live broadcast on UST from their home computers or iPhones, all of these people sharing the same time and space and tweeting about the same performance gave me such a sense of unity. I couldn’t even imagine that these people could share the same time and space and tweet about the same performance.

It’s true that when you’re on twitter, it’s normal to be able to experience sharing time and segments through tweets about real time news or TV programs, but the fact that it’s your favorite music, and it’s being played live in front of you, is a whole new level!

What can I say, it’s nothing compared to what I’ve experienced on twitter!

Sometimes I get so absorbed in the performance that I forget to mumble, or I enjoy my own TL with the live music in the background… It’s truly a blissful time, a luxurious experience.

I wonder if the people who actually tweeted at the venue at the last Grain Oke had this experience. I was deeply moved when I thought so.

I don’t know if it’s because I love music or not, but it’s no exaggeration to say that I’ve never had such a wonderful experience. twitter is great, but I felt the power of more than that.


It was a blessing just to be able to hold a concert with such wonderful friends and colleagues, and to be able to experience a sense of unity and sharing that I’ve never experienced before by participating in the tweets in real time, I have nothing more to say. It was a memory that I will never forget.

I’m not sure if there will be a next time, but if there is a similar event, I would definitely like to participate. Next time, I would like to play a little harder.
