Amazing Groupsourced Music Video

Jul 7th, 2009 | By | Category: Citizen Media, Internet TV, Video

The music video was shot for Sour‘s Hibi no Neiro (Tone of everyday) is a very clever example of groupsourced music videos.

Fans from around the world worked together to create synchronized patterns and lo fi effects for the video. The cast were selected from the Sour fan base, from many countries around the world. Each person and scene was filmed purely via webcam.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Director: Masashi Kawamura + Hal Kirkland + Magico Nakamura + Masayoshi Nakamura

LYRICS —————————————- ——————

Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday

Footsteps of spring
the city starts adding color
The melody flowsLE LU LA LI
Through the colored lenses

Whats the most important thing?

Spinning and turning on the overpass
as we overtake that season
this and that, which color is your melody?
Sometimes you could get confused

What are you thinking of now?

If we can embrace all the differences
It will shine the sky in rainbow colors
Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday

You can see it in any color, because of your clear feeling
Dont worry about it, lets just go as we are.
If we can embrace all the differences
The rain will stop, and the sky will shines in rainbow colors

Your heart that gently reflects in the puddle
is your tone, as you pass through the maze of everyday
You can see it in any color, because of your clear feeling
Let your tone shine like the rainbow

Pass through the maze of everyday
And start playing your tone

  1. […] An amazing example of video/musical “groupsourcing”: Sour’s Hibi no Neiro (Tone of Everyday). I am flummoxed as to how something as complex and satisfying is master minded. Oh well, I’ll just sit back and enjoy it. [Via Podcasting News] […]
