*PLEASE WATCH FULLSCREEN IN HD FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCE* Opening title and excerpt (chapter 6) from my new DVD "The Light Painter." In 60 immersive minutes it provides a 20-year overview of 121 of my light paintings. These images are created not by a computer, but by moving the camera during long exposures in front of many kinds of light sources, from tiny LED's to huge fireworks. In this case the source was illuminations and traffic in Tokyo. The accompanying music is taken from several of my solo improvisation performances on vintage keyboards, at Superdeluxe and other venues here in Tokyo - my home since 1985.
Machi is the Japanese word for "city."
PLEASE try to watch fullscreen using the highest quality (720p) as these images are very detailed (they were shot using a Hasselblad H2 with a PhaseOne P45+ digital back). The loading may take a while (best to hit Pause while it loads) but I think you may find it is worth the wait. (Actually, it's not too bad at 360p or 480p; but 240p is useless...).
