Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground

BY MATT KETCHUM
@ VOL 139 ON SEP 28, 2016

“Japan is not just about video games, anime, sushi..but it is incredibly diverse, progressive and colourful.”

In "Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol.139Matt Ketchum speaks about his enthusiasm towards Japan's extreme underground life as a musician. Japan's well known for its robots, anime, sushi, and ninja, but that's nowhere near the whole of Japan's cultural identity. Unseen, unheard, and damn near unsearchable but nevertheless teeming with energy, there is a completely separate dimension of Japan's creative communities: the extreme music underground.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, October 7th, 2016.

Ian Dommisse explains.

IN ELLENSBURG
