Japan’s Oorutaichi (aka Taichi Moriguchi) calls his music “imaginary electronic folklore.” His loopy loops and break beats come from whimsical and off-kilter inspirations. He often sings and chants in a made-up language.
In “Hamihadarigeri” he dices and slices a left-field choice, indeed, “Symphonique #1 (Portrait of a Monarch)” a piece by the legendary blind musician Louis Hardin, AKA Moondog, The Viking of 6th Avenue. It’s amazing and the animated video absolutely lives up to the music. What an audio-visual knockout.

“this video deserves to be played continuously on a hundred foot screen in times square.”
Thank you Taylor Jessen!
