Biographie de TSUKIYOI

† Tsukiyoi est un duo constitué de Kou (joueuse professionnelle de koto, l’un des plus anciens instruments traditionnels japonais), et de Tetsu, créateur d’univers musicaux. † Kou joue du koto depuis l’âge de 5 ans, et du shamisen depuis ses 10 ans. Diplômée en 2006 de l’université de Tôkyô Geijutsu, elle s’est spécialisée dans la musique de koto de style Ikuta. † Tetsu est quant à lui un musicien polyvalent qui maitrise la musique occidentale et orientale (le violon, le piano, le chant nô, le shamisen…). Il a participé à la création de nombreux disques en tant qu’arrangeur ou directeur musical.

How we Formed

† Tsukiyoi is a duo that formed in 2011. Their music combines rock, 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 TSUKIYOI. After winning the Live Generation X grand prize, the duo played “Tokyo Crazy Kawaii Taipei” in Taiwan in September 2014. Their full album, “Blue Moon” is on sale now.

Our Future

† We believe that music has a magical power to shorten the time it takes for us to learn from one other, to grow together, and to foster a genuine understanding amongst peoples and nations. What’s necessary is to first eliminate the invisible barriers between. Music can be a way to break these walls down. † We would like to articulate and transmit our message and ideas to people throughout the world in order to form a strong connection with others. † Through the richness of Japanese culture and history, we hope “Tsukiyoi” can be a catalyst for a better understanding amongst peoples. Yes, this is our dream.

"TSUKIYOI means the moon that can only be seen in the early hours of the night. Drinking and dancing under the moonlight. Let’s enjoy with us, Cheers!"
