“SOUND & FURY” Project (MIZUSAKI Junpei / OKAZAKI Takashi / MORIMOTO Koji / Michael ARIAS) [Japan / United States]


A visual album covering every song on Sturgill SIMPSON’s Sound & Fury album. Based on the artist’s own concept of “a character reminiscent of a Japanese samurai riding an American car and confronting people in power,” guest directors participate in an omnibus format. Produced with various techniques, including 3D computer graphics and hand drawn animation, the album lays out a worldview without adding special effects or dialog to the songs.
