Rock ‘N’ Roll March / OTAKI Eiichi

ONISHI Keita

Video work [Japan]

Uta Techne is a show that produces modern music videos of Japanese songs from the 1960s and 70s. Rock 'N' Roll March uses a second line beat from New Orleans funeral marches, and takes the theme of a “cheerful funeral march led by OTAKI Eiichi,” who died in 2015. All sounds in the song are transformed into characters that express the sounds with their movements. [2 min. 7 sec.]
