Shugo Tokumaru – Katachi

Japan’s Shugo Tokumaru has been making his rounds since his debut release, Night Piece, in 2004. Known for his indie pop sound — catering to the Pitchfork audience — Tokumaru has released his best music video yet for the single Katachi (meaning “shape“) from his 2012 album titled In Focus?. Directed by Kijek/Adamski, this stop motion piece is composed of approximately 2000 silhouettes cut from PVC plates layered in an everlasting chain.
