◆Director Takeshi Hamaya's Comment
I had the opportunity to see ASTERISM perform at a live concert before I came to Japan, and as a member of the same generation, I couldn't stop shaking with excitement. At that time, I vividly remember thinking, "I really want to compete with the coolness of their videos!" I vividly remember thinking, "I really want to compete with the coolness of the video! 
With many overseas listeners, I was very worried about how to bring out the charm of ASTERISM and its universal coolness. In order to make it different from the previous work, I thought that by visualizing and expressing the tone with light, there would be a coolness that transcended the language barrier.

We thought that one of the keywords for filming was "session.
Therefore, we instructed the photographer and lighting staff to freely express what they felt about the song. The artists and staff members were truly in a frenzy, clashing with each other's individuality.
The side guitar part was impressive, just like a session.
I got goosebumps at the site as ASTERISM's performance sharpened with each take.
The editing of "Madness Hey Kids! the distorting screen effects were meant to blur the boundaries between the two.
When I looked up the meaning of "Madness," I learned that it refers to a Kabuki or Noh play called "Madness Mono.
I thought it would be interesting to create a climax, as if the curtain were falling at the end of the performance.
Silhouette" is also a music video piece where the coolness of sound and light collide. Please shake your head and watch it.
