Experimental Pop Music
Friday, November 16, 2012 — 11 PM
“A chain of amusement…Amazingly great.” – TimeOut Tokyo
“…music flowing on a river of magical chants.” – Sonore.com
Japan's unparalleled vocalist and multi-track sound mixmaster Oorutaichi will propel you into orbit and get you up on your feet singing and dancing in no time! Oorutaichi's colorful yet experimental pop music, which he refers to as "imaginary electronic folklore," weaves fanciful language into never-heard-before loops and beats. Titled after Oorutaichi's latest album, Cosmic Coco, this event, which also includes a celestial-inspired installation and video by Oorutaichi and his creative team, transforms Japan Society's foyer into a revolving nightclub. Rock, pop and hip-hop spinning local sensation DJ Aki will open and close the night.
