Beats and Things – prtytrx by Marty Hicks

Last year I collaborated with my good friend, Marty Hicks, to produce some tracks for my Tokyo Talks series on YouTube.

Good news, his album is finally out and you can get it on bandcamp:

Rewind almost 4 years ago when I met first met Marty in Kyoto when I was working at Ritsumeikan University. He was a short-term study abroad student with his sights on furthering his studies at the Tokyo University of the Arts in the future. Well guess what? He’s doing that now!

Very active in the local music scenes in and around Tokyo, you’ll find his Instagram (@marty256) to be a snapshot of his exciting life as an Australian / musician / pianist / composer / artist – living in Japan.

2017 Tokyo Metro Underground Mysteries

Tokyo Metro is running a great escape game. You ride the subway around Tokyo and figure out the puzzles with the hints you’re given. First, buy the game kit from selected Tokyo metro stations, then go to the starting position. I highly recommend playing this, and of course, do it with a team mate.

Fukuroshosabo – 梟書茶房

The books in this store are covered so you can’t see the title and cover. The owner writes a short blurb on the front to describe the book, followed by two comments recommending other books based on your character. I got a book about short songs.
