Ah, the music we hear in the dear anime series we all love… Well, sit down and buckle up, as we explore a gauntlet of new and old titles.
Saturday, August 4, 10:00am to 11:00am, Panel Room 1 – Meeting Room 109
Think you have what it takes to name the songs based on short clips? Can you also name the series it’s from… and what of the artist? To the victors, come the spoils, so give it a try for some prizes!! Caveat: There will be a round where we play songs in reverse… how well can you do?
A Vancouver based music ensemble that arranges and performs anime soundtracks. Being excited about anime and the music within, their repertoire includes loyal interpretations of background music from your favourite anime shows as well as arrangements from popular series. Through the musical instruments, the group hopes to recreate and share beautiful and memorable moments from anime across eras and genres.
Friday, August 3, 7:30pm to 8:30pm, Ballroom A – Main Events
We are a group of avid professional and semi-professional musicians who enjoy arranging music. We have performed at Anime Evolution 2016, Anime Revolution 2017 as well as Bellingham Convention Spring 2017.
Anime Revolution wouldn’t be complete without some Japanese Rock performance! Luckily, 11 to Midnight, a local Vancouver band, will be lending their unique sound for your enjoyment on August 18th, 2012 in the Main Events Room. Before they hit the stage though, Rewrite Jr. will be opening up the concert for 11 to Midnight. Performance will start at 8:30pm and end at 9:30pm.
Rewrite Jr. is made up of two artists, Sho and Sayaka. This local acoustic group of two will make their debut on the Anime Revolution stage!
11 to Midnight was formed in March 2012 by Marc, Spencer, Yuki and Isaac (bass, drums, vocalist, and guitar respectively). Since then, they have kept going strong by producing three originals titled “Promise”, “Solitude” and their newest song, “Kimi”. When asked to define their music style, the band describes it as unique and that they don’t follow any trends of other musicians but themselves. The members of 11 to Midnight firmly believe in their own style and sound and they make the best out of it.
11 to Midnight will be performing their three original songs as well as two anime song covers at Anime Revolution. Here’s a hint, two words: Fullmetal Alchemist.
Here’s a little preview of what to expect on the night of August 18th:
