More Insights Into Finding Fukue 

One of most amazing things about the existence of this documentary, aside from the obvious goal of finding out what happened to Fukue, is that people are getting inspired to reach out to their meaningful friends from the past.  Really, really amazing.  Still in shock over how much interest there has been about this and am very thankful for your well wishes and and loving vibes. :)

Here's another video explaining some more stuff about the film and beyond. And by the way, the song that plays in the 'Finding Fukue' credits is now mixed, almost mastered and will be released in the next week or two!  It sounds so great - amazing mix by my friend Ryan Granville-Martin (who also played drums on it).  K, enjoy:

The release of CBC documentary 'Finding Fukue' 

I am surprised and excited to announce the release of the CBC documentary we shot earlier this year in Japan, 'Finding Fukue'!  The film was made by Loud Roar Productions in conjunction with CBC Docs, and I was responsible for the musical score as well as being the subject of the film.  We went to Nagano prefecture in the spring to search for my long-lost childhood friend, Fukue and it was quite the journey.  To be honest it feels both weird and liberating to have this very personal experience on show to the world.  Many viewers have written to me already telling me that they cried when they watched, and that makes me feel better about the large amount of the film that I also am in tears.   

So, I hope you will watch the film if you feel so inclined, and share, and comment.  Empathy is more important than ever in this quickly changing world we live in - I hope this film makes you feel something, and think about the people you love, both those you've lost, those still in your life and those who've fallen out of touch. xoxoxo
