Just Blaze & TOKIMONSTA Make Beats With Sushi

The artists have their way with the Sushi Sequencer for Red Bull Music Academy

In case you weren’t aware to 2014 Red Bull Music Academy in ongoing Tokyo. In a celebration of Japan’s many artistic practices, RBMA have released two videos which bring together Sushi and music technology. The idea behind the laughable concept is to make a sushi conveyor belt a playable sequencer.

The results in the video are tongue-in-cheek but the technology behind it is anything but. Helped along by a team from Native Instruments, Past Academy attendees Just Blaze and TOKiMONSTA synced music to coloured plates on the restaurants conveyor belt.
