Tokyo Camouflage by Haruka Matsubara

It turned out Haruka Matsubara is a graphic design student at Musashino Art University. If you read this blog, yup Tokyo Camouflage is her graduation project.

The best project was Tokyo Camouflage because it gave me the opportunity to think through the concept on my own for the first time, and also, I had the luxury of spending 1 year for concept development.

Theme on Tokyo is nothing new, and various professionals in various fields have already worked on it. So much information on Tokyo is available, and even if you don’t live here, you know Tokyo. But do we truly know Tokyo?

When you visit a country for the first time, you notice things that are overlooked by locals. This is because you see things with fresh eyes. The projects reflect that sense of newness, focusing on how to best showcase Tokyo with fresh perspectives.

The Kedama Movement

For those who do not know what a Kendama is, here`s the official definition:
Kendama (けん玉, also written as 剣玉 and 拳玉) is a traditional Japanese toy which consists of a ken (sword) and tama (ball) connected by a string. The ken has three cups and a spike which fits into the hole in the ball. – Wikipedia

AROUND THE WORLD “What the Dama!?"

Kendama is foremost a toy, but there is also a also more serious and competitive forms of Kendama play which is overseen by the Japan Kendama Association. This toy miraculously has started a life of its own abroad and became hugely popular in Western street culture. It has also triggered many tournaments around the globe with players getting serious about Kendama.

This is the name of a recent design competition and exhibition at USN Gallery in Tokyo which has spawned an interesting collection of funky Kendama designs.
Below we have selected a few of the Kendama competition entries which are quite marvellous to look at:

Sakabe’s women’s clothing line is best defined as a hybrid of different archetypes for women, combining the aspects of child-like doll clothing with different aspects of the modern business woman, traditional Japanese women’s clothing and a modern, streetwear inspired flair. Examples of his hybrids include the use of a denim miniskirt with a business suit jacket and a tie or the sleek, single color clothing of a modern doll with punk rock styled cuts.

Modern Eyes - Jump Jump Dance Dance (remix one)

First listening this sound at my favourite car, Oh Damn! Who is made this amazing robotic sounds? and when I saw the song list mentioning to this band - Jump Jump Dance Dance. I look at again and again, really some band have the odd name. But well this band is totally old school band which I just knew a couple days a go, damn! 

Who they are?

It’s unusual for an up and coming band to have a pedigree as impressive as that of Los Angeles electro rock conspirators Jump Jump Dance Dance. But as it stands, the duo of Chris Carter and Simon Lewicki had amassed a wealth of experience – Carter as an in-demand DJ and vocalist who has played alongside such luminaries of the LA scene as DJ AM and Tommie Sunshine, and Simon as the mastermind behind the celebrated club acts Groove Terminator, Tonite Only and Chili Hifly – before uniting to create Jump Jump Dance Dance. But Jump Jump Dance Dance isn’t about rehashing former glories, as glorious as they may be. Instead, it’s an all-new beast with its own unique energy and style. 

First coming together over a shared love of synthesizers, Australian culture and sweaty dance floors, the renowned studio wizards began to furiously write the blueprint of the Jump Jump Dance Dance sound, exploring and tweaking the happy medium between dance and rock music. Clearly, the pair were onto something special as their first batch of demos immediately hooked Australian imprint etcetc - the home of PNAU (producers of Empire Of The Sun) and Lost Valentinos (helmed by super-producer Ewan Pearson) as well as internationals Mylo, Datarock and The Knife. 

Determined to once-and-for-all perfect the ultimate hybrid between these two often-disparate genres, the duo elevated themselves above the electro scene by turning Jump Jump Dance Dance into a fully-fledged, truly organic live band where instantaneous guitar riffs collide with towering synths and club energy.

But, I'm don't want to mention about this band more. On this post, I just wanna tell you that some freaking good DJ remix they tunes into amazing robotic electronic sound. He call herself as Vindata and make boring  Jump Jump Dance Dance tunes into amazing one. You can see his remix here:

and this is the original Jump Jump Dance Dance ones
