This short aired on Toonami/Adult Swim a few years back-- it's weird AF in the best way possible. Little alien bugs that you can use as binoculars or to summon massive flying stingrays... It was great; but I wanted to see what it might feel like with a deeper more orchestral score.

Part of an on-going passion project. Tsutomu Ōhashi wrote a really amazing score that bleeds updated Hiyashi-kata into Neo-Tokyo. But Akira is such an icon of cyberpunk/retrowave subculture, I really want to see the whole thing rescored with Synthwave. This is a sampling of some of the work-in-progress.
