Personal Statement of the General Producer of ARTIST ACTION Arise (the AAA Project)

Contributing to the charity album “Artist Action” after the Great East Japan Earthquake provided me the opportunity to connect with many brilliant musicians. Originally, I had planned a dip in the pool concert, but meeting with other artists encouraged me to plan a more collaborative event. That is why I started the AAA Project. We soon found supporters from across Japan who agreed with our desire to revitalize people’s spirits through musical events and all the related social acts of creation involved in organizing such events, including reconnecting individuals through social activity. We proceeded with such hopes. Men and women are endowed with the important faculty of imagination, and what we imagine (or do not imagine) makes us who we are. Without our imaginations, we will not be able to meet our spiritual needs let alone our physical needs. What all of us need now is not to simply recreate the past but imagine and create a radically new future. I hope that this project will stimulate, even if only a little, all of our imaginations that are still too often oppressed, repressed or suppressed. This plea is for both those living in the immediate disaster area and those further afield.

11 January 2012, dip in the pool Tatsuji Kimura



After the Great East Japan Earthquake, various artists got together to search for an appropriate response. We compiled the charity album “Artist Action,” which is currently available on iTunes. Proceeds from the sale of this album have been/will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society. We hope that our ongoing activities will encourage many people to become involved and that the circle of support we have begun will widen in the future.

DJ3000 & Diametric “Equatorial Soil (antennasia dub Remix)” out now!

9月 20th, 2011 | Category: news


DJ3000 & Diametric “Equatorial Soil (antennasia dub Remix)” available now.

“It’s usually a complex and soulful experience when DJ 3000 and Diametric team up for a release. Building upon the overwhelming response to their previous releases such as “Safe House” and “Migration” the duo bring more introspection to “Equatorial Soil.” Enter Antennasia, a powerhouse duo from Japan, to remix not only the production of DJ 3000, but intersperse the deep and tonal vocal from Diametric. Adding their own flare, Antennasia builds and chops and distorts “Equatorial Soil” into something even more riveting than the original production….”


The original version is included to Franki Juncaj’s album “INVISIBLE MOODS” (Motech).
Check the album as well.
