YELLOW STUDS – Documentary & gig

A Japanese, indie, piano, sometimes jazzy, garage rock band. With no background at all outside Japan, we made their world debut movie!
What makes this band noticeably unique is the vocalist Taichi Nomura’s rare, husky voice. Mainly from the perspective of his as the leader and also from each member’s interviews on various topics, they tell you how the Japanese live music scene works, how they have come to where they are now, how they compose music, what goals they have in mind, and, of course, how exciting their concerts are!!

SUSUMU HIRASAWA – Concert movie
Another legend in the Japanese movie music world. His sound makes us feel as if we were in a world where the past (myth/ethnic world) and future (SF/computer world) meet the present. That is called HIRASAWA WORLD.
Hirasawa demonstrates a talent for music, as a composer for TV documentary music, sound track for video animation, image album for novels, and so on.
His work includes BERSERK (1997~), MILLENNIUM ACTRESS (2002), Paranoia Agent (2004), and PAPRIKA (2006).

THE VALVES – Studio gig

Agressive rock that emflames your soul, that’s their music! They have been powerfully performing on stage at gigs and festivals throughout Japan and featured in the latest INITIAL D movie.  And now with the new studio live movie, they are ready to astonish the world with their dynamics.
