Chouchou's latest video: Cocoon

Here it is... the newest video featuring Chouchou's music: Cocoon - this time a solo piano piece - in a non-Second Life® video created by Masami Kuramoto (rez: 1/22/2007).

Unless you have been living under a rock, then you know that juliet Heberle and arabesque Choche have taken virtual worlds by storm with their Chouchou, the musical group that exists only in Second Life.

Masami, who hails from Düsseldorf, Germany, is working closely with Chouchou these days. This is his first non-machinima video and moving forward, he plans to concentrate on making more films to showcase this phenomenal band's music.

The music is very reminiscent of anime soundtracks, it wouldn't be out of place in a Miyazake film. The video is nicely done but somehow I felt it didn't fit the music, the two seemed unrelated. The environment they created in SL fits the mood of the audio much more successfully.

Beautiful, but lacking in structure. I kept waiting for it go somewhere else - or evolve - or go to a different level. Something. The visuals set up a mystery that never paid off...
