The geography of your dream #2: report
Last Sunday we went to loop-line cafe in Sendagaya for an indies electronic event called "The geography of your dream #2". I wanted to go there especially to see Hosaka Akane perform, as I've been very much into her music lately. The small cafe was quite packed with about 30 spectators.
First was Aze, a unit of two girls. I think it was their first show. One played clarinet and a Casio sampler keyboard (much like what I saw Lullatone use the other day) and other played guitar and sometimes some percussions, maybe they played other toys and stuff too. I was sitting on a sofa at the back and couldn't see much the whole time, as you can see from my photos. :) They played some slowish songs that made for a nice mood.
Next was Akane, who sat at a small table holding her laptop, a MIDI controller keyboard and a Stylophone. She played backtracks on her laptop while playing her happy melodies live on her keyboards. I think it was the first time I saw and heard a Stylophone, and now I want one badly!
That was a very good set, almost non-stop as there was no time to applause between the songs, and I'm looking forward to see her live again!
Last was suzueri, who projected video on the wall, generated by her computer. The video was mostly some sort of games (one working a bit like Arkanoid, only with cute characters and graphics) that she controlled from a toy piano hooked to the computer! Pretty unique stuff!
On my way out I went to say hi to Akane and she was very kind. She gave me a CD-R of some new tracks she used for the show, including a new mix of the Takora song! Yay!!
