Released August 2020. Available on all music platforms.

First music releases from the soundtrack to Supersonic Cities: Adventure 1 – Tokyotronica, a Tokyo inspired musical story written by Guy Perryman. The multimedia story is coming soon with the music released track by track.

People ask “Where are you from?” but the Supersonic Cities Crew believe “It’s not where you’re from – it’s where you’re at”…

Where You’re At (Tokyo) music tracks celebrate the city with sounds of Tokyo in the mix – taiko drums, shinkansen bullet trains and a vocal inspired by the voice of the “yakiimo” baked potato vans. In the show the music will be performed as a taiko drumming DJ jam.

These tracks launch the music genre Edotronica – mixing traditional Japanese instruments with electronica. Edo being the original name of Tokyo.

With the Power of Music

May 12th, 2020

WITH THE POWER OF MUSIC was first created in early 2020 as a 20 second jingle for the Guy Perryman radio show on InterFM 897 in Tokyo with lyrics written by Guy and music by singer/songwriter Endigo.

The lyrics took on greater significance as the world changed and life got more difficult for people everywhere so Guy and Endigo decided to expand the jingle into a full song released in May 2020.

With a positive message for people “alone all together” they hope everyone can love, laugh, listen, sing, whistle and hum to make life and our planet happier and healthier!!

Musicians around the world are invited to record their own original version using the lyrics and send to guy@guyperryman.com for radio airplay on The Guy Perryman Show InterFM 897 Mon-Fri 7-11am www.interfm.co.jp

Here is the first released version by Virtual People www.youtube.com/endigo

Guy and Endigo both live in Tokyo and didn’t meet face to face until after the song was released. They were introduced on-line by a mutual friend and like so many people around the world create at home and communicate via technology.

WITH THE POWER OF MUSIC

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

Hoping to walk with you hand in hand
So many apart across every land
Music and daydreams are another way
To imagine us together on a happier day

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

The melody takes your soul for a flight
Sunrise, daytime and all through the night
Feel vibrations and your spirits soar
With a song by your side forever more

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum

At home with time to stop and think why
Maybe just maybe an answer comes by
This virtual life connects me and you
Re-united we’ll heal our real world too

With the power of music we can fly
Alone all together reach for the sky
Around the world everyone
Love laugh listen sing whistle and hum
