We finally decided to put English Page in MS's HP!
This is a page for those of you who are anticipating MUSIC SHARE (Thank You!!) and not understanding Japanese.
So we will try to upload essential info in here so that you won't have some serious questions.
Question like "Who the hell is that guest?!" or something like that.
There are numbers of things we want to do for non-Japanese speakers. We want to make HP in several languages. We want to put English Subtitles for interview, etc. But this is the best we can do at this moment.
So here is what's going on.
MUSIC SHARE for ENGLISH SPEAKERS
Thank you for watching MUSIC SHARE#64.
We had a sudden black out on our monitor a few minutes after we started streaming. I restart my PC and try to resume the streaming but OBS rejected. Then we had an internet failure.
I don’t know what caused what, but it was a messy night so far as streaming is concerned. Sorry if we let you down or anything.
OK! Hope you enjoyed Hopi.
Now, let us introduce our next guest, ROTH BART BARON!
Their HP is also in English, so there is pretty much everything.
So here is one of MUSIC CLIP and a part of their biography.
- Biography -
Masaya Mifune : Guitar / Vocal
Tetsuya Nakahara : Drums / Chorus
ROTH BART BARON is a indie rock band based in Tokyo, Japan.
The band started in 2009, when Masaya (Ag/Vo) and Tetsuya (Dr) were in college.
ROTH BART BATON’s music is influenced by various artists of different genres, modern rock acts and folk music in particular. Artists such as New Order, Bon Iver, Wilco, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Neil Young are essential in building up their own styles.
~from ROTH BART BARON’s HP~
Though they are based in Tokyo, they’ve done a tour in the states, Asia, recorded their album in Philadelphia and Montreal.
It looks like ROTH BART BATON are heading to the world. And their music with such a vast scenic image is definitely a world-class.
So excited to have them in MS! And you don’t want to miss this one.
We’ll see you on 11/28!
Bye for now!
How to watch MUSIC SHARE
MUSIC SHARE does live-streaming on every 4th Tuesday of the month.
Guest : HOPI
@REDBULL STUDIOS TOKYO on 10/17
Mysterious trio unit called 'HOPI' appeared in Music Share.

Guest : Fake Eyes Production
@REDBULL STUDIOS TOKYO on 9/15
Fake Eyes Production, who has just released their new album "LET's GO Heathrow", joined MUSIC SHARE with their live DJ mix.
MUSIC SHARE is a music program on internet and the shows has been streamed monthly since 2012.
The founder of MUSIC SHARE is the MC lady with grasses and microphone, MICHIYO HONDA.
MS's members are from many range of social background.
We get professional camera men, actor, PA, writer, designer, office workers and so on.
We all have love for music.
And believe MUSIC SHARE's idea.
TV and Radio used to function as a guide to new music. Musicians were picked up, their music were played and they got publicity. So we had a lot of musicians making many different types of music making a living.
But they seems to have stopped doing that and became an advertisement.
We used to hear a lot of Rock, Hip-hop, reggae, techno and many more. A few decades ago, there was diversity.
Now, all we hear on Radio and TV are idles and crappy J-POP and Nothing Else.
Top charts are filled with that sort of industrial music. The songs that designed to sell and make profit.
Unless you are into that kind of music, there is no music show you can bear to watch. None.
If those music are a few among many, that is fine.
But if they are pretty much "it", then we get a problem.
That is why MUSIC SHARE was started.
To introduce talented Japanese musicians to the world, to help music lovers to find the good tunes, help musicians to make a living so that they can keep on making music, bring back diversity that is lost, and make people's life a little better and little more fun.
That is what MUSIC SHARE wants to do.
So we live stream our shows. Sometimes go out to shoot the live performances.
Also, we are trying to make MUSIC SHARE branches across the nation.
Currently, we have Kyoto running a show every 3re Tuesdays. Shimonoseki is about raunch their first show, Niigata is planning to do their 2nd. we want to re-open Sendai. We have pans for Atami,Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukushima.
It will be nice to be able to listen to music that only exist in certain region.
Or what if you don't have to live in Tokyo to be a musician?
That is what we want to do with MUSIC SHARE Network.
And currently, we are doing this unpaid.
All the members share what MUSIC SHARE believes.
We do this for love. Not for money.
But, that doesn't mean we don't want it.
We need money to keep MUSIC SHARE going as well as keep ourselves going.
So meanwhile, please tell your friends about us.
And in a near future, if we start selling T-shirts and stuff, please buy them if you want us to continue MUSIC SHARE as it is.
Once Dr Motte joined MUSIC SHARE.
He is a founder of Love Parade. That is a legendary rave that gathered 1.5 million people at its peak. It's a monstrous party. It was a bloody gigantic movement.
And we, MUSIC SHARE also want to make a movement.
So we asked Dr. Motte.
"How do you manage to make that huge event? What was the key to success? How could we ever do it?"
He said at once.
"Oh that's simple"
And smiled faintly and opened his mouth.
"Do what you love. Love what you do."
Michiyo Honda and I really love these words.
We might not gather 1.5 million people nor have an opportunity to surprise ourselves with piles of money but I guess that's how MUSIC SHARE is run.
