Omodaka

13 Jan


Omodaka (also known as Far East Recording) is a Japanese collective of visual artists and musicians. Their multimedia projects fuse traditional Japanese music, electronic elements, animation, motion graphics, and visual art pieces. Their video Asadoya Yunta (above) juxtaposes calligraphy with computer animation, contrasting various dimensions: 2d versus 3d, curvilinear versus rectilinear, organic versus synthetic. The video below, for Hietsuki Bushi, is a psychedelic animation that is as vibrant as the music that accompanies it. I have no clue what it’s about though.
