UKAWANIMATION! Presents XXX RESIDENTS
This mysterious masked multimedia cosplay unit was spun off from Naohiro Ukawa’s UKAWANIMATION! project. The members are anonymous, just like the Residents, a mysterious group from San Francisco—home of the extreme avant-garde. Taking up a concept officially approved by the Residents, in which the Residents’ "grand avant-garde" music is deconstructed to a “deep minimalist” level, reconstructed, replayed, and given a dance music twist, XXX Residents are a sort of audiovisual Zen riddle that turns anonymity against itself.
