Garbage is a big problem in the city of Solo. It can be seen in the Putri Cempo Final Disposal Site (TPA), which is the place where the final processing of waste from all areas of Surakarta City takes place. The waste management activities of the Putri Cempo harm the safety and comfort aspects of the environment as well as location and accessibility but also become an opportunity in the economic part. To campaign for Solo as a city that supports and cares about environmentally friendly issues, what art actors can do is disseminate the crisis that occurs through various media so that the public more easily understands it. One of the most effective ways to attract people today is through a video. They are supported by music that can foster empathy for the audience. Research methods, creation, and presentation are based on research and experimentation. The process of creating works consists of several stages, including the exploration stage, experimental experiment stage, improvisation stage, forming step, and finishing stage.
