"Mood Playlist” video content of music by okkaaa x KOKUYO ME

KOKUYO ME is a series of stationery products sold by KOKUYO CO., LTD. that add a sense of accessory color to everyday life.

The “World with # KOKUYOME,” a work-related background music video with music and looping animation inspired by the world of each color, was released on YouTube and Spotify on April 10, 2024. It contains a total of 20 songs that match the sporty “Fair Play” image. The playlist is filled with a variety of moods, from up-tempo to chill pop, and is suitable for a wide range of scenes from studying to working out.

The music is composed by okkaaa, a Kayac employee and active musician who has been called a “DIY artist of the Z generation,” and conveys the appeal and worldview of “KOKUYO ME” not only visually but also aurally.

In conjunction with the release of the video, an Instagram giveaway campaign will also be held at the same time, with a drawing for a four-color set of illustration stickers and a “KOKUYO ME” stationery set.

This video is a “Mood Playlist,” which consists of four looping animations that change in time with the music evoked by the four colors of “Fair Play. A “mood playlist” is a playlist that plays music genres of various moods. This video is a playlist filled with music in various moods to evoke four moods from a four-color worldview and also to be enjoyed in active scenes, and will be available on YouTube and Spotify. Of course, as before, the sounds of KOKUYO ME stationery are also used in the songs. The soothing and danceable songs with comfortable beats can be listened to while studying and working, as well as while running, working out, and in many other situations.

The animation for “The World with # KOKUYO ME” depicts an outside situation where a girl, who also appeared in the previous “The Room with # KOKUYO ME,” is outside sketching and reading her notebook. The slowly changing scenery, the movement of the girl's cat, and the “hidden cat” are also noteworthy. The project is a reflection of the idea that “KOKUYO ME” will color, enrich, and accompany people's lives in every scene.

In 2023, we released the “Room with # KOKUYO ME” with the hope that people will enjoy living with KOKUYO ME even more through the Lo-Fi video, which is often used in study and work scenes. In 2024, based on the active image of the theme color “Fair Play,” we will release “Mood Play,” which includes a variety of songs that can be listened to not only when studying or working, but also in various situations such as sports. The “Mood Playlist” was created to include a variety of songs that can be listened to in various situations, such as sports as well as study and work.

We hope you will enjoy the movements of the cat in the animation, the active nature of sports, and the sounds of stationery in the songs.

<Comments on the project>

This work has a different taste from the previous lo-fi mood, making you want to go outside. We worked on this song during the cold winter season, imagining the warm mood of the coming spring. Please listen to it while basking in the pleasant sunlight and warm breeze. And of course, please listen to it with KOKUYO ME.
