A Message to You from King Gnu/ millennium parade、PERIMETRON

King Gnu/ millennium parade/ PERIMETRON Daiki Tsuneta

We have engaged in every aspect of our activities, including not only our music, but also our music videos, artworks and products, with a sense of conviction. It would be a pleasure for us if we could share with everyone the life that we have breathed into our numerous works to date through this exhibition. Being a theme park with an amiable name like GNU-MILLEPARK, I hope everyone will feel free to come and enjoy themselves.

PERIMETRON/ millennium parade Shu Sasaki

It's a great honor and joy to have music videos and artworks that were completed once, revived and delivered once again to people through this project. The theme park is still under construction, but I would like everyone to come and take a peek at the inner workings of our minds.

Profiles

King Gnu

Creator Daiki Tsuneta, who studied at Tokyo University of the Arts, began forging his unique musical path with the creation of Srv. Vinci in 2015. After several member changes, the band settled on its current lineup of Daiki Tsuneta (guitar, vocals), Yu Seki (drums, samplers), Kazuki Arai (bass), and Satoru Iguchi (vocal, keyboards). After appearances at SXSW 2017 and Japan NiteUS Tour 2017, the band relaunched itself as "King Gnu" in April 2017. Their sound, known as "Tokyo New Mixture," brings together their unique pop sense and sensuality. They have played at major festivals, such as the FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL and RISING SUN ROCK FESTIVAL, and their music videos, created in conjunction with their partner creative label, PERIMETRON, have drawn a great deal of interest. Their headlining shows always sell out!! They have created a distinctive world through all of their creative efforts ? their music, videos, artwork, and live performances.

King Gnu

millennium parade

millennium parade is a creative collective organized by Daiki Tsuneta, a producer and songwriter based in Tokyo, Japan, who also leads one of the region's biggest bands, King Gnu. millennium parade is an energetic and inspiring group, composed of artists from various creative fields including musicians, a film director, visual effects artist, designer, illustrator and so on. Their musical sound is electronic-leaning, featuring synths and pop-inspired melodies, overlaying chaotic beats.

millennium parade's concept is inspired by "Hyakki Yakō" - "The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons", deriving from centuries old Japanese folklore. The 'night parade' saw supernatural creatures roam the streets causing utter pandemonium throughout Japan. This chaos and mystery underlies the group's collective vision to present Tokyo's new values to the rest of the world. Their ambition is global and their intention is to surprise and awaken.

From their first appearance in 2019, with stunningly memorable music releases and companion videos, all created by the band, an innovative launch party utilizing 3D technology and sold out live shows, the band emerged in 2020 as a force to be noticed. Their song 'Fly with me', was the main theme song for world famous Japanese animation 'Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045' and it was remixed by the renowned Steve Aoki. The band returned late 2020 with the genre-bending 'Philip', spinning tales of injustice and hope from the mouth of a 2D animated Doberman named Stan.

Despite being a relatively new and curiously mysterious group, they have already collaborated with DIOR and most recently adidas, for whom Tsuneta was recently named a Global Ambassador, while Tsuneta himself has also been featured in campaigns for Coach / Jean Michel Basquiat and more. The chaos will continue as 2021 appears.
