Thank You All! Sound Camp Live Video Published!

It was really an exciting weekend.
Eleven musicians and DJs appeared on the stage of Studio Dive
and played awesome music.
The Aria West sim was always full of people,
who had a lot of fun all those nights.

Here the video of the event has been published.

I am happy to know through the nearby chat shown on the screen
that everybody enjoyed my show. :-)
Here I would like to thank all the people who made this show possible,
the audience, the staff and my friends.
I'm looking forward to seeing you again someday somewhere in Second Life!

Final Day of Sound Camp: Starts at 6:00 AM PDT Today!

soundcamp3.jpg

The second day of Sound Camp 2013 saw RMO, REI-GIRO and mk2SR
and all those units proved their music is very stylish
and their talk is pleasing and sometimes makes us laugh.
As the musicians who appeared on Day 1,
they did attract the hearts of the audiences every minute of the show.

And today is the final day.
I will also play in the time slot between TAKUMA, vocalist of GA-GO,
and weiß, masa Homewood's project synchronized with dance performance:
both of them are one of the greatest musician in the SL music in Japan.
So don't miss those shows.
I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

Sound Camp 2013 Begins Today!

soundcamp3.jpg

It all began with masa Homewood's tweet:
"I want something exciting...
What if I re-create my live house "Studio Dive"
and various types of musicians and DJs play there every night..."

It was not long before ten artists reacted to the tweet and declared they would join.
And so did the event staff members.
Everybody wanted "something exciting" in the Second Life music scene in Japan.

Those ten musicians and DJs will play at the special stage
set up in Aria West sim, in a location where Indianna Jones might explore,
from Friday July 26 through Sunday July 28.
In addition, Protege Karas will appear today, Thursday July 25,
and give her DJ performance as a prelude to the weekend event.

Now, check the videos and the event details below
and come enjoy the best of the Japanese SL music.
I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

At the venue of Kerupa Flow's gallery "Nest of the Dragon" in Dreamworld Pearl,
Hiroshi Kumaki collaborates with Kerupa in creating a fantastic world
of light and sound.

This is not a usual live performance.
Sound and light will be generated improvisationally
and fill the space where Kerupa's artistic productions surrond you.
You can touch and sit in this event as well as see and hear.

I cannot imagine myself what will happen in the event.
I'm looking forward to sharing this time and place with you there. :)
