Androp : Worlds Words Lights
Company : Warner Music Japan, Party inc
Artist : Androp
Yuri Suzuki was asked to artistically direct and design the series of objects to create music video of the Japanese band Androp together with
Masashi Kawamura and Qanta Shimizu from Party inc.
Such was a commission work for Japanese Creative Agency Party, in collaboration with KIMURA (Tasko Inc), and Tomoaki Yanagisawa (Rhizomatiks).
For this project, a series of robots were created and controlled via MIDI message to respond to the rhythmic and melodic structure of the song.
The resulting video for the band’s single ‘Words Words Lights’ is a truly reactive interplay between robots, light, and music.
