Orchestration of the Self

(a photo of Kaki, taken by Matt Schley)

I talked about my alter ego Kaki before. So, we made a new song together, this time a cover of Perfume's hit Chocolate Disco. For those who don't know, Perfume is a cute idol trio from Japan produced by Nakata Yasutaka. Since the original song is a really cheerful naive tune about Valentine's Day, I wanted to make our version of it dark. Cute and creepy are just different sides of the same coin:)
Anyway, this is my interpretation of the song, Schokoladige Disko:

Schokoladige Disko feat. Kaki- Zana by zanacaroline

And this is the original:

And here is a review of the song posted on a Make Believe Melodies, a blog about Japanese music:

Kaki's next concert is on Friday, July 1st 2011, in Koenji One. I'm lined up with Onozaki Kiyokazu from Andersens, one of my favorite Japanese bands, so this is a big honor for me.
