TSUKIYOI
ABOUT
 

Tsukiyoi is spearheading the new genre of “NeoMystic J-Rock,” which entwines Japanese traditional, spiritual, electronic music with rock. They approach their music as a ’distraction for creation,’ leading the evolutionary future of Japanese rock in 21st century. Their profound sound is enhanced by their vibrant stage show with Japanese traditional costumes and the world’s first electronic asian zither called the “Electric Koto’. The modern Japanese traditional aesthetic of founder Tetsu Fujiki’s on keyboards and Kou Kakinokihara’s e-koto combined their stunning stage show is a perfect combination of sound and style.

 

Tsukiyoi is a duo that formed in 2011. Their music combines electro-pop, tradition, and avant-garde. Kou actually plays the koto, and Tetsu creates various musical worlds. They debuted with “ROKUDAN”, an ambient arrangement of the 400 year-old koto song of the same name. The duo started featuring more songs with Kou’s vocals in 2012. 2013’s “AKAKU SAITE” was called a “very radical pop song” by England’s Electronic Sound magazine. “Transitory”, which is based on “IROHA UTA” (a traditional Japanese song structure) captures Japanese aesthetics and religion. It won second prize at Dubstep Contest, sponsored by an America record label. In July 2014, Tsukiyoi played at “Japan Expo 15” in France where the crowd chanted for TSUKIYO. After winning the Live Generation X grand prize, the duo is scheduled to play “Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Taipei” in Taiwan in September. Their full album, “Blue Moon” is on sale now.
