VJ : QOTAROO（ CosmicLab / POWWOW )
QOTAROO is graphic artist / designer and the one of the leader of a party scene in Kansai. In past, he had organized many parties as a booking manager in Club Zing. Now he is holding “Powwow” in various places in Japan dropping the imagination, which comes from the party into the design, while he circulates a dance floor and design. Like he says “When making a flier and a jacket, I think the color changes the melody/shape for a groove, and it’s translation to sight from hearing.” QOTAROO expresses, naturally and very closely, the feeling and vibration of the moment when DJ sets sound free. “ I watch the sound. I hear the light” This sense is the true charm of the design of QOTAROO.
