Japanese studio Ryo Matsui Architects hung steel chains to create upside-down domes above the stage of a music recital in Tokyo (+ slideshow).
The stage set was created last spring for a performance of Hypnagogia, a recital named after the drowsy state between sleep and wakefulness.
A total of seven domes were suspended above the heads of performers and were illuminated with colours that changed for different stages of the music.
