Genki Sudo's World Order

7 posts in this topic

Just because they are so fun to watch: here are World Order from Japan. They have a signature slow motion walk that you will see in most of their videos, but there's also a lot of clever movement with interesting tempo shifts. And they create the music as well.

"For those unfamiliar with World Order, they are a unique Japanese band created in 2009 by former mixed martial artist, Genki Sudo, that incorporate music, slow-motion and classy suits into a pure blend of auditory and visual awesomeness." --William Goodman

"Welcome to Tokyo"

"Aquarius"

Thanks for posting. Very cool movement patterns! If only I knew what they were saying.

I'm not even sure what the titles of the video songs are, but here's a couple samples of lyrics from other songs:

Pushing aside the veil of the world,

we hear two voices:

embellished lies that sound pretty,

and distorted truths that are buried in the crevices.

What is good, and what is bad?

The truth is always a paradox.

As this era comes to its end,

we'll wake up from our slumber.

The galaxy's rhythm is your idealism.

The cycle of dreaming produces a stunning dance.

1, 2, the galaxy's rhythm is your ideal rhythm.

Start dancing in this very moment!

WORLD ORDER

from Machine Civilization

The morning of machine civilization

Red pretext, shadow doubt

clad in mourning clothing of blue.

Ryhtm captured in the morning,

Always the same instant.

Don’t stop the production line.

Something broken,

In the twilight of machinery.

Where’s the world going?

Won’t somebody tell me?

Are these thoughts illusions?

Are we all one?

This world will be changed…?

This heart an illusion?

I just found an English translation of the Aquarius song (video above):


Skies and dreams reflecting each other, a red moon appears
The age of AQUARIUS, The age of AQUARIUS
The cogs of the endless stars and the hidden do a lap around the Earth
Buried memories sparkle and recover
An old era completely washed away, wings soar up freely
The age of AQUARIUS
We start to open our eyes to the breath of the age of new light
The age that has been passed down moves, let’s overlap it with secrecy
The future of everything has now begun
Hope starts to sing The age of AQUARIUS
We start to open our eyes to the breath of the age of new light
The age that has been passed down moves, let’s overlap it with secrecy AQUARIUS

I love that video - makes me laugh everytime. Especially the part where the woman in the background tries to imitate the band's movements and she starts to fall over. ;)

I also like the "sandwich eating" movement at the very end of the video, after the music has ended. And all the choreography when the band is arrayed on the red carpet - that's just brilliant.

This video is pretty interesting too, and a bit different in manner from the others:

Boy Meets Girl
