An Evening of Animation: Student Works from Japan and the U.S.

JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles is partnering with Tokyo University of the Arts (Tokyo Geidai) and the University of Southern California (USC) in presenting a two-day program on January 13th and 15th entitled “Visual Euphony: Animation & Music,” bringing together emerging talent in the fields of music and animation from both Japan and the United States.

On Sunday, January 13th, in “Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ Live Animation Concert,” students and faculty from the music departments of Tokyo Geidai and USC, two of the most prestigious music programs in the world, will perform a euphonic visual performance of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.” at The Aratani Theatre in Little Tokyo. Using Yamaha and Tokyo Geidai’s AI-based animation synchronization technology, an artificial intelligence (AI) program that listens to music and continually synchronizes the animation with music, each season will be accompanied by animated films by renowned independent animators.
