New song: Kono machi de

Post by Jei » Sat Nov 02, 2013 11:50 am

Hey folks,

Looks like DCT created a collaboration song with AEON called "Kono machi de". It's supposed to be played in AEON stores and malls as well as a TV commercial from Nov 1 to Jan 13th.

I haven't seen it yet, but DCT is supposed to be in that commercial. :)

No CD or digital release is scheduled...yet.

kono machi de, DCT references, Monty Python & William Mo

Post by Bandman » Thu Dec 05, 2013 1:51 am

I enjoyed this video for the music and the style of the animation.

I wonder if anyone else noticed it has the primitive animation "method" often used on Monty Python shows from the 1970s?

AND MOREOVER that in the background there is a figure doing the "silly walk" from the famous "Ministry of Silly Walks" skit by John Cleese.

Perhaps some of the other figures in the background are notable as well.

Which brings to mind the words in the background at the end of the song "Go for it"

"Hey honey, let's watch Monti Python
What now, I don't think so.
Well how about Gerry Anderson, I got a new box set
You must be joking. I guess we just don't have much in common.
Well that may be so, but I love you
Oh Darling, Oh Darling!"

DCT is often referencing something, which is not a bad thing.

I had also noticed that the artwork on the album "Sono saki e" seems to reference the printed fabric image "Windrush" by 19th century British artist William Morris.

Remarkable and fun, desu ne!

kono machi de, Alice in Wonderland, Marc Chagall

Post by Bandman » Thu Dec 05, 2013 2:06 am

The images of the video seem to also broadly reference Alice in Wonderland (lest we forget the name of their mega concerts, "Dreams Come True in Wonderland") and the color pallet of Marc Chagall, who has a well-known painting at the MOMA in NYC, "I and the village" might remind one of "kono machi de" or "in this city." That painting, however, does not look much like this video.

I lot of thinking seems to have gone into this video!

Pretty neat! Can't wait to see/hear the whole thing! Also, is it me or does it remind you all of the art from the Ola! Victoria! single?
