Japanese sound-artist mixes field-recordings, vocals and electro

Japanese musician and sound-artist Haco received international recognition as one of the founders, singer and composer of the legendary avant-pop band After Dinner. Her work goes beyond the conventional genres due to her unique way of working, in which she uses field-recordings and ambient noises to create surrealistic compositions. One of her more recent works, ‘Qoosui’, combines traditional Japanese music with free-improv, shoegaze, musique concrète and rudimentary electro.

She has already previously released work on labels like ReR Megacorp, Tzadik and ROOM40.

For fans of Felicia Atkinson, Tim Hecker, Ikue Mori
In the press ‘My view is ‘no borders’ when it comes to sounds for creating new music. I want to open my ears and find the rhythm and tone for all of the sounds in my life.’ – Haco

‘A founding member of the legendary band After Dinner, Haco is one of the most versatile vocalists in  the Japanese indies scene.’ (John Zorn)

‘Listening 'Qoosui' feels like stepping into a dream or drowning in clouds of perfume.This is a siren song of an album, drawing the listener deeper and deeper into uncharted territories.’ The Wire
