Help Yuka & Chronoship Bring Their Music to Life

We've been telling you about the great Japanese band Yuka & Chronoship for a while now, and we hope you've all caught on. The band's album The 3rd Planetary Chronicles is their best yet, and fans have been asking for some visuals to go with the music. To that end, the band has started a campaign to raise funds for video production.

Yuka & Chronoship - 3rd Planetary Chronicles cover artFrom the campaign page:

The music video that we want to make through this funding opportunity is intended to go beyond the category of “music video” primarily comprised of scenes of performance. It should be a visual work of art that delivers the worldview of the music.

Music featured in the video is “Galileo II – Copernican Theory”. The tune is the starting point of the whole album, and is well received in and outside Japan.

The video’s production director is Masako Gomado, a reputed VFX artist that had worked in a variety of visual media including Japan’s national TV network’s long running, one year long drama series and the movie, “20th Century Boy”. The art work is provided by Oda Hideji, the manga artist and illustrator that created the excellent artwork for the band’s 3rd album. The music video should be a highly creative attempt to present the worldview of “Galileo II – Copernican Theory” through the collaboration of music, artwork, and VFX!

They've set up a number of rewards for donors, so we all have a chance to be a part of this project. Have a look at the IndieGoGo page for more details.

Allan Holdsworth RIP – Surely in the list of artists who have contributed to the sound of modern music, there is a special spot for guitarist Allan Holdsworth. His name is known to virtually every student of the instrument in jazz and rock, and his style has been so widely emulated that it's hardly worth mentioning anymore — we can just assume that every guitarist has Holdsworth as an influence. » Read more
