A NEW ERA – 一緒にTogether

Dear Pink Spider Web reader and supporter,
和訳が完了し次第アップいたします、全速力でお届けいたしますのでそれまでどうか楽しみにお待ちください。

you might have noticed that the ” The Live Feed” have been rather silent lately.
This is due to a major new undertaking and the birth of a new international project.
About 3,5 years ago I had a dream, a vision, that The Pink Spider Web could be used actively for creating true bonds between people across the globe.
I wanted to create an international collaborations project between musicians.
Some of you might recall the ideas of the international film and music project called
一緒にTogether – isshoniTogether

 

Anna IT film
A project in which musicians helped each other with the support of their combined audiences.
The idea was to create a project with bands from two countries and let them collaborate on a music project and help introduce each other on their respective home grounds
We would document and blog as the project progressed and the project would go final with a tour in two countries with the artists.
 
IsshoniTogether Map Logo
 
Cancer illness
 
Unfortunately, I got very ill in cancer, and the project went dormant, but it has always been my dream!
Once I was well from a second cancer period last year, I altered the project and started hosting events under the same name in Tokyo – 一緒にTogether
Aiming to appeal to an audience with mixed ethnicities, not only Japanese even if here in Tokyo, and aiming to help foreign artists come to Tokyo and play.
 
Red Shoes
 
MAYA MELODIA Tokyo

 
As an example of this is Maya Bergman, a Swedish vocalist who came over to Japan,
and whom I introduced to Japanese musicians and audiences here in Tokyo,
and in November this year the Swedish band Novembervägen came to Tokyo to play together at the SAME gigs as Japanese artists.
The Japanese “hosts” were artists and bands and they then had to share their audience and HELP the visitors.
and WOW do Japanese people know how to make people feel welcome to their country!
 
DERINJAR
 
Watatani
 
Still in me I had this dream that has never left me…. the dream ever since I started The Pink Spider Web, inspired by ” a call from the sky” ,
a message I believe came from hide (X-Japan guitarist who died May 2, 1998)
We can do MORE and BETTER together!
so….
The universe (and hide’s message to me) proved once again to have connected people with similar dreams.
I came in contact with
Kenji Okahira and RockFord Records (http://www.rockfordrecords.com)
who resonated with this idea completely!
Kenji Okahira told me, he too shared these visions!
We had many talks and discussions, and a new project idea was born.
 
Kenji Okahira
 
During 2015 I started collaborating more and more with the amazing people at RockFord Records.
I mentioned in passing my dream and vision about musicians collaborating,
and I shared with them the dream project:
Since Tokyo is hosting the Olympics 2020,
Japan could benefit from this somehow, and primarily Japanese musicians and everyone in culture industry.
Actually I wish for the project to be a peace making project, and not just benefit the Japanese musicians, but send a message to the world somehow. That despite the current events of terror world wide, we can together show that music can aid and be a tool in creating friendship and peace.
Imagine!
Imagine what we can do
Imagine what we can do Together!
 
Anna Shown
 
and…

A new MISSION with a project vision spanning over the next coming 5 years came about
Once again the concept of doing things TOGETHER proves to be so much stronger and
TOGETHER we can accomplish so many positive actions that truly can change peoples’ lives.
 
Arinko

The mission statement, and a video with the Japanese participants for the 2016 team)
can be read here:
http://www.isshonitogether.com/
 
Hysterics
 
The IsshoniTogether 2016 project is a huge undertaking because:

We need to collaborate globally across language and cultural borders.
We need to listen to each other and accept that people work and act differently.
We have basic needs such as funds to transport musicians from Japan to Sweden
and money to take them around IN Sweden.
We need support from the outside both mentally and financially.
We want to attract people to an idea
We need to publish material online in at least two languages
We need help with translations, with bookings, with web design, with shooting, creating and editing videos
We need to spread the idea …so

Please JOIN US
Please read the Mission Statement, consider donating to the project, and SHARE the idea
and
BELIEVE
that we can really CREATE a lot of GOOD with passion for MUSIC and for each other!
THANK YOU
from the bottom of my heart I am grateful to all and everyone
for support, for cheering on when illness and pain has come my way
for smiles and sparkles
for helping with translations… without you Erica I would be so disabled,
for sharing your ideas with me and creating mutual projects, events and ideas,
and especially huge thank you to
Kenji Okahira and RockFord Records
Now Let’s DO THIS!
as Kenji says: Let’s GO AHEAD!

Presenting E N S O to the world

So what’s in a name?

What’s with a band called E N S O?
Ensō: 円相 “circle”, is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create.
The Ensō symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and mu (the void). It is characterised by a minimalism born of Japanese aesthetics.

E N S O is exactly this …Music… borderless, timeless, friendship, joy, happiness…
The four members are not only immensely talented but they radiate a joy that is contagious and they share with us a feeling of togetherness that surpasses time and place…
and creates friendship
Friendship, Togetherness and Peace is what this band is all about
E N S O’s members:
Reds☆ (Vo.)  Yuichiro Szk (Gu.)  TAKAHIRO (Ba.)  西田’Ryu’竜一 (Dr.)
are all so talented and all so kind, The Pink Spider Web is convinced that you will really love them too!

Reds☆, with the divine voice, and a past from the successful band AURA and big hits like “Are You Dreaming Now?” and “Smile&Smile” have appeared many times previously here in the Live Feed. He also is currently singing in the acoustic band Clutch and plays Guitar in 湾岸の羊
There will be more on Clutch coming up here in the Live Feed
Clutch next live will be at MELODIA Tokyo at ACTION! 2 August 15

Yuichiro Szk is a young, very talented guitarist. Word class guitarist and He can be seen at Koenji Showboat August 6 together with  西田”Ryu”竜一 , 満園庄太郎  and 石川雄也
Yuichiro reminds me a lot of Kyoji Yamamoto, not only in playing style and talent, but also in personality. Kind and smiling!

TAKAHIRO  on bass is not only the band’s bassist (from Re:VIBE) but also talented designer and organizer, and the list is even longer; add skills such as arranger, composer, programmer and producer .. so truly a member of that beautiful creativity that flows from stage when E N S O is performing

西田’Ryu’竜一  last but not least is the band’s drummer. A history of awesome drumming behind him and yet so up to date. Drumming in the past with Action, Gackt and more, and is currently drumming in Ra:IN, the band formed by PATA (Gu. X-Japan )
He is a favorite drummer of The Pink Spider Web; just check out his amazing handling of the sticks in the video below!!

I can probably flood this with superlatives about E N S O and I am SURE you will hear more about them. This is just the beginning with these 4 talents who has formed an amazing band, founded on Japanese values of kindness and peace, combined with musical skill at a very high level!

Check them out!
Next live performance will be at
Club Sensation
September 19

2011 she graduated from Fryshuset’s 3 years music educational program
“Rock – Instrument” with guitar as the main subject

June 2015 they released their first full length album called “Destination”.

So ….Let us introduce TSUKIYOI 月宵
(introduction of KASSTRICK BACTERIA is below and Maya will follow next in the feed)

 

Tsukiyoi stage

 

They write on their homepage:
http://tsukiyoi.com

ロック・エレクトロポップと伝統・前衛が交差するサウンドユニット『月宵』。日本の伝統楽器、”箏”を自在に操るkouと、幅広い音楽世界を創造するtetsuにより2011年結成。
400年前の箏曲「六段」をアンビエントにアレンジしたROKUDANがデビュー作。2012年よりkouのボーカルをフィーチャーした楽曲を続々発表。2013年発表の楽曲「赤く咲いて」は ”超ラディカルなポップソング” と評され英国Electronic Sound誌に取り上げられたほか『いろはうた』を題材に日本の美意識・宗教観を盛り込んだ楽曲「Transitory」は米MondoTunesレーベル主催Dubstep Contestで堂々二位受賞。2014年には、ジャパンカルチャーが集まる世界最大のコンベンション、フランス「Japan Expo 15h」に登場し現地にTSUKIYOIコールを起こした後、こちらもリアルな日本カルチャーを発信する、台湾「Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Taipei」出演し好評を博す。そして今、世界に一台のElectric Kotoをフィーチャーして創り出す世界は、過去・現代さらに未来をイメージさせる正に ”月宵ワールド” である。
フルアルバム『Blue Moon』好評発売中。

Tsukiyoi is pioneering in the new genre of “Neo Mystic J-Rock,” which entwines Japanese traditional, spiritual, electronic music with rock. They approach their music as a ’distraction for creation,’ leading the evolutionary future of Japanese rock in 21st century. Their profound sound is enhanced by their vibrant stage show with Japanese traditional costumes and the world’s first electronic Asian Zither called the “Electric Koto’. The modern Japanese traditional aesthetic founder Tetsu Fujiki’s on keyboards, and Kou Kakinokihara’s on the electric koto, create a stunning stage show with a perfect combination of sound and style.
After debuting with their music “ROKUDAN”, a modern arrangement of the 400 year old “SO” music, the duo has released “YOUGAO”, a traditional Japanese music combined with Club Beat Rhythm. The duo has amazed fans around the world, and they continue to take on a global challenge with their combination of electric pop and Japanese traditional music.

Now let’s listen to them:
more about them from their Facebook below

https://www.facebook.com/tsukiyoi 

 

 


 

 


 

On their Facebook page the write:
https://www.facebook.com/tsukiyoi 

† We believe that music has a magical power to shorten the time it takes for us to learn from one other, to grow together, and to foster a genuine understanding amongst peoples and nations. What’s necessary is to first eliminate the invisible barriers between. Music can be a way to break these walls down.

† We would like to articulate and transmit our message and ideas to people throughout the world in order to form a strong connection with others.

† Through the richness of Japanese culture and history, we hope “Tsukiyoi” can be a catalyst for a better understanding amongst peoples.

Yes, this is our dream.

† Tsukiyoi is a duo that formed in 2011. Their music combines rock, electro-pop, tradition, and avant-garde. Kou actually plays the koto, and Tetsu creates various musical worlds. They debuted with “ROKUDAN”, an ambient arrangement of the 400 year-old koto song of the same name.

† The duo started featuring more songs with Kou’s vocals in 2012. 2013’s “AKAKU SAITE” was called a “very radical pop song” by England’s Electronic Sound magazine. “Transitory”, which is based on “IROHA UTA” (a traditional Japanese song structure) captures Japanese aesthetics and religion. It won second prize at Dubstep Contest, sponsored by an America record label. In July 2014, Tsukiyoi played at “Japan Expo 15” in France where the crowd chanted for TSUKIYOI. After winning the Live Generation X grand prize, the duo played “Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Taipei” in Taiwan in September 2014.

Their full album, “Blue Moon” is on sale now.

The line up artists are from different genres but they share something…
- the idea that music goes beyond borders and is meant to be spread across the globe!
Share smiles  and enjoy music together!
The Japanese bands KASSTRICK BACTERIA and TSUKIYOI 月宵 have both been to
Japan Expo in Paris, France
and are both keen on reaching out from Japan with their music,
The third artist, MAYA, is from Sweden and has a desire to share a bit of Sweden, and the outside of Japan, with the Japanese audience.
They are all true bridge builders, hence
The Pink Spider Web and 一緒にTogether events
is very grateful for this particular line up.
They are from different genres, but this also gives the audience an opportunity to meet friends in music beyond people you you might not have met otherwise
Japanese and foreigners together,
different genres together
one goal….
to create friendship and build bridges with music
Let the Pink Spider spirit create a WEB of inspiration…. let’s spin it together and wrap the globe….

KASSTRICK BACTERIA

Here was they say about themselves {English below]: 

KASSTRICK BACTERIA(カストリック・バクテリア)は、日本のインダストリアルロックバンド。 2007年 KasstrickShownを核に結成された。 日本代表インダストリアルロックバンドを目指す為、東京を拠点に本格的に活動を開始。 2014年フランス・パリにて開催された、ヨーロッパ最大級の日本文化フェス 「JAPAN EXPO2014」出演。 2015年夏にはアメリカ・ハリウッドの老舗ライブハウス”Whisky a go go”での公演も決定。
主要人物は エレキギターメーカー SCHECTER JAPAN(シェクター)のギターモニターを務める KasstrickShown (カストリック・ショーン)。 彼を主とした KASSTRICK BACTERIA は、 ロブゾンビやマリリンマンソンのようにソロプロジェクトとして、活動を行っている。
全世界への音源発信と海外での音楽活動を目的とし、日本人としてのアイデンティティーを誇る ジャパニーズインダストリアルロック。その音楽性は、攻撃的でハードなサウンドかつ ダンサブルなリズムに様々な音を組み込んだハイブリッド・ミュージック。 サウンドとヴィジュアルと強い世界観で、見る者の五感を強く刺激するスタイルは ロブゾンビやアリスクーパーに見られる「ショックロック」ともとれるだろう。
KASSTRICKの世界に存在する非現実空間。 それは「音楽+アート」の中に生まれる中毒性の強い世界観を持つ。

KASSTRICK BACTERIA is a Japanese industrial rock band originally formed by Shown in 2007. Their goal is to become a main Japanese representative within the Industrial Rock genre, hence the band recently seriously started its Tokyo based activity. .
The band performed in the biggest festival of Japanese culture in Europe “JAPAN EXPO 2014″ in Paris, France in 2014. The band also performed in the legendary live house “Whisky A Go Go”in Hollywood in US in June 2015.
The band leader “KasstrickShown” is working for the guitar maker “SCHECTER JAPAN” doing guitar research. Along with leading KASSTRICK BACTERIA, he also has a solo project, which has sounds similar to artists such as: Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson
While they are aiming to spread the KASSTRICK BACTERIA sound all across the globe, the band is still proud of their Japanese identity and representative for Japanese industrial rock. KASSTRICK BACTERIA’s music style is a hybrid of powerful and hard sounds while still keeping a dance beat. Their style strongly stimulates all five senses through both sound- and visual impacts and it resembles something like “shock rock” by artists such as Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper. According Shown, “surreal space” exists in the world of KASSTRICK. This “surreal space” has a strong addictive, like poisonous, view of the world, that is born from within the conjunction of “music + art”.

JESSY – Purple Heart Jet Star Release Party

Finally it was time for JESSY’s release gig at Ruido K2 in Shibuya!

The new Album “Purple Heart Jet Star”  has so many good catchy songs!
The release live featured 3 other bands prior to JESSY’s performance:

and DJ: SAJI

Writing this a little backwards and starting with JESSY -  after all this was all about them!
They started off with their first song from the album featuring Shin (HeavensDust) as guest vocalist.

Before JESSY the audience could listen to the wild and entertaining gang in PUNiK.
They are really punky and RnR, and yet so charming on stage.

Also The Pink Spider Web fave band ザ・ビールス  [The Beers]  were on this night!
Kenpa and his excentric, yet punk fashion-aware statement, sets the bar when he enters the stage…
They are really a lot of fun to see and have such a cool attitude to themselves
Beer included :P
