Acclaimed Vocaloid producer livetune (also known as “kz” who composed Packaged and Tell your world) released his latest album “Re:Dial” on March 20th. On youtube, there’s a music video featuring one of the songs recorded in the album Redial. This video is created and directed by the world-reknowned artist Takashi Murakami and his team of talented artists, Kaikai Kiki’s Studio Poncotan Animation Studio.
Team up of Takashi Murakami and livetune is already quite a dream collaboration, but Murakami is not the only one who contributed to the making of Redial music video. With character design by talented arnimator/artist mebae (who also designed album cover) and choreography by Ken Maeda (who directed ending theme dance sequences for anime Pretty Cure series), no doubt the video turned out amazing with a perfect balance of cool and cute!
Check it out for yourself!
Murakami will also premier his first feature film he ever directed, Mememenokurage (EN: Jellyfish Eyes) on April 26th (English site). Livetune’s piece “Last Night, Good Night (Re:Dialed)” featuring Hatsune Miku is used for the film’s theme song as well. It’d be interesting to see how the two creators continue to work together in the future.
If you liked the video or music or both, there’s a commemorative merchandise for Re:Dial too! Super cute Redial version Hatsune Miku T-shirt illusterated by mebae.
And don’t forget to check out limited-edition and normal edition Re:Dial albums.
It’s always nice to see really talented creators team up to make amazing masterpiece!
