This work has been entered in “Shinjuku Creators Festa 2018”.
It originated from the abstract image captured from people walking in Shinjuku, visualizing the image freely and flexibly.
The city of Shinjuku itself, the buildings and people - they all seem to be heading in a certain direction, growing and developing.
Though we are not quite sure what to make of these forms, we are simply struck by the beauty of their silhouette.
Seeing that it shares a common concept with a chemical reaction formula called “reaction diffusion”, we have incorporated into this piece of work a spontaneously created cycle pattern using Houdini and TouchDesigner.

Three different patterns of the work were presented on “Digital Signage EST VISION by LUMINE EST”.

その考え方はreaction diffusionという昔からある化学反応式ととても近かったので、自発的に生まれる周期パターンをHoudiniとTouchDesignerを併用し、表現の中に組み込みました。

「デジタルサイネージ EST VISION by LUMINE EST」で、3パターンの違った映像を展開しました。

Voice of Vision

Since 2013, we have participated in a public art project called “Shinjuku Creators Festa”. Voice of Vision took part in this festival in 2018.

Using traditional electronic music as its motif, Voice of Vision suddenly starts a countdown toward something undescribed. With a techno-pop taste, this countdown graphic appears in the city of Shinjuku out of nowhere.

This graphic is an experimental collaboration between graphic creator Seiya Nakano and musician duo Satoshi & Makoto.

Seiya Nakano is one of the most profound technical director in Japan with an abundant experience from projection mapping to large-sized graphic installation. The members of the duo Satoshi & Makoto met at Kraftwerk’s Japan tour. They released their music from a Dutch music label called Safe Trip and has gained reputation since then.

Their music is very unique. For Voice of Vision, Satoshi & Makoto used vintage synthesizer from the ‘80s and ‘90s and created this music by intricately simulating each sound.
The equipment we used for both graphic and sound are all vintage and utilized various techniques. Therefore, we isolated ourselves from the up-to-date mainstream machines.
It is said that the origin of techno-pop is the ‘80s classic old school. This music is an homage to the origin and we made an attempt to collaborate with the artists who can feel empathy with this idea.



今回は映像を中野誠也(Seiya Nakano)氏、音楽をSatoshi & Makotoというアーティストと実験的にコラボレーションしました。

中野誠也氏はプロジェクションマッピングや大型映像インスタレーションで、日本の数多くの有名なプロジェクトを手掛けてきたテクニカルディレクターで、音楽のSatoshi & Makotoは、Kraftwerkの来日ライブで出会ったアーティストで、オランダ safe trip レーベルからリリースした作品が話題を呼んでいます。

音楽はオリジナルで、Satoshi & Makotoが今回のために80〜90年代のビンテージシンセサイザーや、緻密にシミュレートした音源を駆使して制作しました。

DOLLHOUSE is a piece of work we did with a rock band called Radical Hardcore Clique. We directed a VJ-ing work which uses 2 layers of screen. These layers are made of high-luminous clear display and we mounted them on “MNGL”, a new-generation DJ booth. In the actual performance, we had the musicians stand right in the middle of the 2 screens.

Based on graphics created by Synichi Yamamoto, DOLLHOUSE created a world of crazy and psychedelic club scene using interactive technologies. For instance, we delay-mapped real-time 3D motion graphic and also created a physical simulation graphic which is based on mathematical super formula.

DOLLHOUSE was performed in [BRDG], a collaboration event of music and graphics, and at [ADIRECTOR vol.1-DOLLHOUSE], an event which enunciates ENTER-TECH (entertainment + technology). [ADIRECTOR] took place from August 4th to August 27th 2018. They rented a whole 4 story building facing the crosswalk of Harajuku. The main organizer of the event was a masked unit from Avex Music called [2nd Function].

高輝度透明ディスプレイを配置した次世代DJブース「MNGL」を使用し、アーティストRadical Hardcore Cliqueを中心に前後に設置された2レイヤーの映像をVJ演出しました。

山本信一のGraphicsをベースにDelay Mappingさせたリアルタイムの3Dモーショングラフィックや、super formulaの数式をモデルに物理シミュレーションさせた映像などを使用し、クラブシーンでのクレイジーでサイケデリックな世界観をインタラクティブに表現しました。

映像と音楽の交配イベント「BRDG」と、ENTER-TECH (エンタテインメント + テクノロジー)をかかげるエイベックス内の組織「2nd Function」を中心に2018/8/4-8/27の期間中、表参道交差点に面する4階建てのビルを丸ごと貸切った「ADIRECTOR vol.1- DOLLHOUSE」の会場で行われました。

Inspired by an artist SUNNOVA’s same-titled music, JUDGE was created for a special exhibition within an event called “Shinjuku Creators Festa”. The theme for this exhibition was “Visualize Shinjuku”.

We created the visual image based on the concept of the music: “Do Not Label Us”.

In our work, you will see the real-life and the vulgar element of Shinjuku which transform everyday. Yet at the same time, you will also see jungle of skyscrapers which gives an artificial impression. Then a question arises: Does the city that we actually see and the people right in front of us really exist?

The world of JUDGE expresses the complicated world view of truth and lies by creating a collage of Shinjuku which we actually shot as well as non-graphic elements which do not exist.

「新宿クリエイターズ・フェスタ」の企画展示「Shinjuku City Visualize」において、“新宿の視覚化(=ビジュアライズ)”というテーマでSUNNOVA氏の同名楽曲からインスパイアされた映像を制作。
