Live from Tokyo2010

  • 3.1
A vivid look at Tokyo's music culture as a reflection of Japanese society and its relation to international music. LIVE FROM TOKYO takes the viewer through the back streets in Shinjuku, the intersections in Shibuya, the alleys in Koenji and all over Tokyo. Tokyo's reputation for an overwhelming variety of global information, media-saturated urban environment and cutting edge innovation, makes it the perfect sample for addressing a new outlook on music as it explores this eccentric music culture set within a modern Japanese megalopolis.

A unique look at the overloaded music culture in Tokyo. I love that there is so many creative acts bouncing off each other, always searching for new sounds and ways to express themselves musically.

The last sentence in the movie gives the virtues of this film most clearly: it introduces us to some interesting experimental/pop music going on outside the United States we would not have access to otherwise. Despite some intrusive editing of images at the beginning, to anyone interested in digital music as practiced by small bands in Japan, the film contains some very interesting intevierws with committed young musicians and some kick-ass music. I would watch the film again.

An in depth look at at the incredible underground music scene in Tokyo. Great visual movement in this film to compliment the music. The interviews/opinions in the film are intriguing as well.

Great music holds this documentary together. Quite nice to see the faces behind the music and the scene and understand the current club culture.
