In 2009, Japanese sound artist Yosuke Fujita hand built a unique pipe organ with eleven pipes, a blacksmith's air pump and no keyboard. Instead of being just another musical instrument, Fujita intended his organ to evoke rich landscapes inspired by the Japanese classical form GAGAKU. After releasing "hibinari" in 2010, Fujita spent time developing his relationship with the organ, integrating his voice and exploring the instrument's tonal colors. Last year, he issued a slew of exceptional records: "iki"(Hallow Ground), "Three Cs", "KŌMORI"(Boomkat Editions) and February's "tsu tsu". In live performances, he has augmented the organ, using sound-synthesized tanks to generate water sounds from multiple aquariums alongside the pipe organ, and compose a live piece while incorporating site-specific elements.
