29 August 2014
The Red Bull Music Academy , a brand now identified with some of the foremost musical acts in the world has unveiled a trailer for their exciting new venture – a six episode documentary series which explores the unsung histories of the men and women behind Japanese video game music called Diggin’ In The Carts.
Each episode will examine a new stage in gaming evolution - an exciting concept for any gamer and fan of contemporary electronica. The series will delve into gaming culture from the 8-bit era to today and will be in conversation with Japanese composers Hirokazu “Hip” Tanaka (Tetris, Metroid), Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage), and Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy).
The documentary series will also feature underground luminaries influenced by the sounds of video games. Flying Lotus, Dizee Rascal, Just Blaze, Joker (who released a SEGA inspired mini album last year), Fatima Al Qadiri, Kode9, Havoc, J-Rocc and Ikonika will give their own personal statements alongside Japanese composers to emphasise the international global impact this music has had.
The series comes in anticipation of this year’s edition of the Red Bull Music Academy which will be taking place in Tokyo this October. Kolkata based singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Nischay Parekh, will be representing India at this years edition.
Check the RBMA website on 5 September for the first episode of the series. You can watch the teaser trailer for Diggin’ In The Carts below.
