Keiichiro Shibuya Playing THE END

About “THE END”

Keiichiro Shibuya will be performing a much awaited piano solo concert in Tokyo Spiral hall.
Shibuya recently returned from a very successful overseas performance of “THE END” which was held on November 12th, 13th, and 15th at Theatre du Chatelet, a renown theater where Jean Cocteau, Picasso, and Satie collaborated.

The concert is titled “Keiichiro Shibuya Playing THE END”, and its main concept is based on playing a piano solo of the musical compositions of THE END.
He will also be playing from recent movie soundtracks such as “SPEC”, and “ATAK019″ and “for maria”, his latest works in line with THE END.

Shibuya will be playing the piano surrounded by multichannel speakers that will be brought into the hall.
It will exceed the sound system and stereo image of a conventional piano concert.
The performances in Tokyo Spiral Hall on December 27th & 28th have different playlists and content.
The audience has been limited to 300 through thorough consideration of the acoustical condition of the hall.
This show will surely be an instant sell out.

2013-11-27 Sony Music Direct より日本国内発売

渋谷慶一郎+初音ミクのオペラ”THE END”のCDがついにリリース。
ソニー・ミュージック・フランスから世界先行発売も決定。

11月12,13,15日に行われるフランス・パリのシャトレ座で公演が世界的な注目を集めている、渋谷慶一郎+初音ミクによるオペラ 「THE END」のCDリリースがついに決定した。今年5月に東京・渋谷のオーチャードホールで公演しルイ・ヴィトンが衣装を担当するなど、常に大きな話題を集めてきた同作品だが、このCD盤のリリースによってついにその全貌が明らかになると言っていいだろう。

日本盤は11月27日にソニー・ミュージックダイレクトより「ATAK020 THE END Keiichiro Shibuya + Hatsune Miku」として完全限定の豪華版と通常盤の2種類がリリースされ、それに先立って11月4日にはダフト・パンクなどを擁するソニーミュージック・フランスより日本人としては前代未聞の世界先行発売として通常盤と同内容のCDがリリースされる。

豪華版はTHE ENDというテーマにちなんで「完全限定生産、20世紀記録メディアへのレクイエム仕様」としてLPサイズのボックスの中に、豪華執筆陣による100ページを超えるEPサイズのブックレット、カセットテープサイズのオペラ台本、CDサイズのパッケージに全曲、全ノイズを完全収録した2枚組CDと 「死のアリア」など3曲のPVと制作風景の記録などを所収したDVDを収めた、2CD+DVD+2BOOKという圧倒的なボリュームで、謎に満ちたTHE ENDの全てを徹底解剖した内容となっている。

特にブックレットではシャトレ座支配人のジャン=リュック・ショプラン、蜷川実花、茂木健一郎といったTHE END東京公演を観た各界著名人によるテクスト、インタビューの他に渋谷慶一郎による全曲解説が含まれるなど、ライナーノートやブックレットの範囲を逸脱した濃密な作りとなっている。また、通常盤では豪華盤とはアレンジの違う「時空のアリア」が収録され、ジャケットのデザインも異なるなど、見所が尽きないリリースとなっている。
