Athletes motivate themselves by listening to music. Heartbroken lovers heal them- selves through music. Messages transferred through lyrics offer encouragement to our weary hearts. Lyric Speaker is a product that provides the user to access the power of lyrics as never before. We imagined what it would be like to materialize the words that  oat, invisible, through the the air and then aimed to design a tra- nsparent screen on the speaker that did just this. Now the user can enjoy the po- wer of the words of the music. It would be such a pleasure if our product allows music to bring even more prosperity to the user’s life. (Description / SAITO Jin) Launch Year / 2016

Lyrics are displayed on a transparent screen, accompanied by motion graphics ti- med to the music. Due to advances in digital music distribution, we are estranged from reading the text of the music we consume, but this product provides a new relationship between the song’s lyrics and the listener. Lyric Speaker makes the “power of lyrics”, which the musician has put such effort into,  nally graspable. (Selection Committee / NOGUCHI Daisuke)
