        • Koto "Kotona mukana" - Sponsor ID

          Client: Serla, Tiimari Agency: JWT Directed and Produced by Cocoa. http://www.cocoa.fi Music by JanneK Beats We created a stop-motion spot for the two sponsors of an upcoming tv-show Koto focused on crafting, creating and inspiration-seeking in an everyday life. The idea was to mix and match Serla kitchen papers with Tiimari crafting materials into one united spot focusing on the function and use of each product separately. Consumer-wise the goal was to create a kind of a sponsored theme for the program rather than a straight forward ad. Something that could be viewed many times and be understood yet not get too boring nor irritating for the viewer.

              Daruma, or Bodhidharma, is the father of Zen Buddhism in much of Asia. Legend tells that Daruma went into a cave in northern China to meditate silently, staring at a wall for nine years. Seven years into his nine years of wall-gazing, he drifted off to sleep. He awoke, furious with himself and cut off his eyelids in penance to prevent himself from sleeping again. His eyelids fell to the floor, and where they landed the first tea plant sprang up. Thereafter tea would provide a stimulant to help keep students of Zen Buddhism awake during meditation.

                  I spent 77 days in Japan, during my stay there I had the chance to get in touch deeply with this amazing culture: I have played the KOTO, the Geisha’s traditional instrument, I made a floral composition following the rules of the KADO art and took part to a real and traditional tea ceremony and I walked the old pilgrim routes through the Kumano Kodo. Thanks to all the people I met in Japan and thanks to InsideJapan tour for this great opportunity. Thanks James!

                      I layered two different patches (Koto + Bells) to get the rich chorus. I also used extensive 'reverb' and 'delay' effects assigned to the mod wheel for the transition sound.
