Volumetric technology meets Noh

World's most advanced "Volumetric Video"

Using the Canon Volumetric Video Studio in Kawasaki,
we conducted Volumetric capturing of Noh,
a traditional performing art
with 600 years of history.

that only Volumetric Video can provide.

Noh is a form of performing arts representative of Japan that has been been passed on for over 600 years since the Muromachi Period. First completed by Kan'ami and Zeami during the Muromachi Period, Noh achieves the most impressive effects with the most limited movements. This simple performance brings out the essence of Noh, and has long been its most charming point.

Noh “Aoi no Ue”

Lady Aoi (Aoi no Ue), has been possessed by a spirit, and is bedridden. Priestess Teruhi, master of the art of azusa, calls forth the true identity of the spirit, and the vengeful spirit of Lady Rokujo appears. She speaks of her troubles and hatred, beats Lady Aoi, and tries to take her away. Lady Aoi’s condition worsens, and as the invited Priest Yokawa-no-kohijiri prays with all his might, the vengeful spirit of the ogress that Lady Rokujo has transformed into appears. After a violent fight, the priest manages to calm the vengeful spirit and help her rest In peace. 
In this project, the last scene of Noh “Aoi no Ue”  (From the vicious fight onwards) involves the use of both Volumetric technology and CG technology. The project aims to fully bring out the feelings of Lady Rokujo.

Shimai “Kumasaka”

At Akasaka of Mino Province, a traveling monk is asked by another monk to hold a memorial service. The traveling monk finds numerous weapons in the monk’s hermitage, and the other monk explains that he stockpiled these weapons to protect the locals from bandits, before disappearing. The traveling monk hears about The Great Bandit Kumasaka Chonan, and as he is offering his prayers, the ghost of Kumasaka appears in front of him with a long-handled sword in hand. The ghost explains about the last moments of his life, where he attacked Kichiji Nobutaka the wealthy merchant, but ended up being killed by Ushiwakamaru. He once again asks the traveling monk to perform a memorial service for him and then vanishes into thin air.

Future Noh

This is a new type of artistic experiment, where Real and Digital interlaces to become an augmented world, expressed with digital music and Noh. Noh, which expresses "yugen - the invisible world" through its sophisticated dances and chants, and Digital Music, which expresses augmented sounds with its scalability that analog music is incapable of, interlace together. Noh's yugen mechanism and Digital Music's scalability helps you visualize not just a future based on logic, but an intuitive one that you can experience with your entire body.
