Chapter Five examines the “subtractivist” response to sensory overload in contemporary Japan, and what it means for interpersonal life. Roquet’s focus is Tony Takitani, an ambient film based on a Murakami Haruki story. Roquet focuses on how the film uses music and fashion to cover over melancholy memories and replace them with a low-affect lifestyle.
