Mr. Children

I watched a movie “Split The Difference” that is a ‘documentary film’ of a band “Mr. Children” and it shows the intermediate between recording and live show.

Nowadays a lot of musicians are playing a concert at large concert halls or baseball stadiums and having huge open-air concerts. However, I saw something different in this movie. Mr. Children invited friends to recording studio and performed live for them and also played a live show in a small warehouse and theater. Both musicians and audiences actually really did enjoy playing and there was a intimacy and warmth between them.

More money is made with increasing distance between musicians and audiences at concert venue, but we lose a joyful feeling of togetherness with distance.


When I was a university student in Minnesota, I saw hundreds of live shows at ‘First Avenue’
First Avenue is a historic and iconic Minneapolis nightclub and music venue and it gives audiences an opportunity to see the band from up close, even the famous bands.

Actually, Prince’s "Purple Rain" was recorded live at First Avenue in 1983.
