Hirasawa's gear and equipment

Hello all

I found out a bit more about some of Hirasawas equipment. There are many known but some not.
One of his newer laptops is a DELL, precisely the red one used in Interactive Live 2009, an XPS in my opinion.
While traveling he uses a Bolbee people delight backpack in silver metallic.
The headset used in Live ICE-9 and P-0 is a Sony MDR-G74SL.
At home he uses a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 inch for taking notes while he is working at his computer.
He wore a SEAHOPE LED watch BAR CODE stainless steel silver and white LED's up until this year when he changed it to a black steel one with white LED's.

New Hirasawa book

I just found out on Moderoom.jp that there will be a new book released by Hirasawa.
It will cover live shows and Live Solar ray and focus on computers as Hirasawa doesn't know much about them
(? if I understand the translation right)
It will be relaesed on 9th of April.
The translated text from http://moderoom.fascination.co.jp/modules/release/nfnc.html is:

Haldyn Dome Box set and miscellaneous

Hey there
been dead here for a while. I don't know if you all have noticed but there is a CD box set called
Haldyn Dome containing his original 7 albums with the Berserk Sountracks, and his side projects Global Trotters etc.
So all the CD's we were not able to purchase as they were never released internatinoaly.

On a side note found this website don't know if we already listed it back in that other thread: http://www.geocities.jp/bansyou_m/hirasawa.html

Tokyo I-jigen Kudou

Hirasawa has announced the DVD for his Tokyo I-jigen Kudou Live show for november 30th!

The DVD will feature live performances of his anniversary remixes from his Kangenshugi CDs, and will be a much higher quality version of the live streams we saw before. The performance itself is not unlike phonon 2553.

Rang will be returning, offering a very entertaining and lively counterpart to hirasawa's often stoic and motionless stage presence. If you don't know who Rang is, feel free to look here. 

Also returning will be the tesla coil from phonon 2551 and the extended laser harp from phonon 2553

There are a few songs with Hirasawa exclusively playing acoustic and electric guitar, which is always awesome. 

Very much looking forward to this DVD, the Live streams only seemed to be a tease to me.

"Observing Hirasawa for 50,000 Seconds" VIDEO STREAMING EVENT

I posted about this on my journal, but I wanted to make sure people know that Mr. Hirasawa will be hosting a live video stream for his fans starting today! :D

Mr. Hirasawa has recently reached 50,000 followers on Twitter! YAY!

To celebrate reaching 50,000 followers on Twitter, he will be streaming 50,000 seconds of live footage on Ustream. (That's nearly 14 hours of video!) It sounds like he'll break up those 50,000 seconds into smaller chunks lasting a few minutes or maybe even a few hours.

He just announced that the first livestream will be held today (Aug. 5) from 9:00 PM Japan time.

You can view the stream at the Ustream channel called Hirasawa監視5万秒 (aka "Observing Hirasawa for 50,000 Seconds").

The stream will show Mr. Hirasawa at work, but will NOT have any audio.

ETA: This first stream is over, but you can watch the official recording of it here. Highlights include Mr. Hirasawa wearing a necklace and briefly showing us one of his cats. ;)

New Song - "Genshiryoku"


Just wanted to let everyone know (in case you haven't already noticed) that there's a new Hirasawa song for download! But it's for a limited time!

Until June 29, the song "Genshiryoku" ("Nuclear Power") will be available for free download here (Push the long gray button to download.) This is song is a remake of the P-Model song "Boat," but the lyrics are now a very clear protest against Japan's nuclear power policy. It's very interesting and catchy...

[Update] I've posted a quick translation of the lyrics here!
