“The Ultra Reality Experience: HOKUSAI’s Ukiyo-e Painting in Real-time 3DCG with 8K Super Hi-Vision HDR Displays”

Tomorrow, as a part of a World Premiere at Siggraph Asia 2015,
I am presenting a 16 channel sound installation of my song “For our Freedom”
unveiling the Canon 8K Camera in collaboration with the famous Japanese ukiyo-e artist and painter Hokusai.

Hokusai’s artworks have been digitally filmed using the Canon 8K camera at the Hokusai Museum in Nagano Japan,
where the artist spent the last 10 years of his life.
These images have further been transformed into a short animation video.

My music has been selected as the sound track for this video and will be featured tomorrow and Tuesday (3 and 4 November) at Siggraph Asia 2015 in Kobe. 

This collaborative artwork is presented as a Special Invitation of Siggraph Asia 2015.

Supported by NHK Japan, Canon and Casey Miyamoto.
Video forthcoming.
