I’ve been working with Tokyo Snow Club for quite a while now. We often do small projects together but this week we’ve started a new DVD project which is very exciting. It involves the filming and editing of Tokyo Snow Club trips as well as the composition and production of a music soundtrack recorded here in Tokyo (to be later mixed in Beijing).
Below is a quick edit of a promo clip for the DVD taken from last weekend’s trip. The music track was created about two weeks ago, when George (from Tokyo Snow Club) and myself were communicating over email in a back and forth play with words when George happened to create the lyrics for the track. I then quickly put them through a vocoder and added some beats and synth lines and the track was done.
The music coming soon should be really interesting; a fusion of multi-layered vocals, live flute and drums, and plenty of retro synths.
