Daito Manabe

Daito Manabe is onto something genius here – this is crazy! The muscles in Daito’s face move in sync to music via some sort of device that sends out an electric pulse. I could see a music video treatment where the entire thing is a close up of a face, kinda like that Bjork video for Hidden Place.

Now Daito just needs to design me a jumpsuit so I can fullfill my dream of winning So You Think You Can Dance. Another video of Daito after the jump!

    Not too heavily into minimal clicks and beeps. I would love to hear some big beats coming out of a blink or two!
