Shingo rocks Roppongi Art Night

This past Saturday night, Roppongi held its annual art night, which runs from sunset to sunrise and features a variety of art and music hosted by the surrounding art museums, Midtown and Roppongi Hills.

W+K Tokyo’s Shingo Ohno was one of Midtown’s featured performers. The event’s program gave him quite a nice introduction …
Merce Death is the solo band of a man who also works as an interactive art director for Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo. His style is to create impromptu music using a guitar and loop sampler. He has held a world tour from his own house called “World Tour from My Room” and he has used a tesla coil guitar to create lightning bolts. He likes to amuse himself by mixing music and technology.

Shingo not only amuses himself, but his audience as well, as you can see here from Saturday’s performance …

Keep on rockin’ Merce Death!
