// okamotonoriaki //
okamotonoriaki is an audio-visual artist based in Tokyo . The 1983 Osaka-born Tama Arts University Graphic Design graduate has been well-recognized for his works since his under-graduate days with his graduation video piece earning him the Encouragement Prize of the Japan Media Arts Festival.
The freelance audio-visual artist is an awarded talent whose accolades includes the “Golden Wings” 2008 Digital Creators Award, The 10th TBS DigiCon6 “Sunrise Award”, DOTMOV FESTIVAL 2008 Shortlist and NHK Digital Stadium’s “Best Selection”.
Noriaki is an artist who believes that the process of producing video or music is the process of outputting little stories that come up in his mind. Each work is like a note to remember the little story that popped up from nowhere.
It is with thus that Noriaki presents his exquisite brand of cinematic, imaginative electronica filled with intricate, inter-weaving piano lines, warm, adventurous synths, and lively, mesmerizing drumbeat programming, capturing the very essence of his audio-visual storytelling prowess and ingenuity in his music.
// Euseng Seto //
Euseng Seto, as flica, began in 2007. In his embryonic form, flica dabbled in a mishmash of the acoustic and the electronic, composing easy listening melody tunes for debut album Windwane & Window (mu-nest label). The release received an overwhelming response from Japan, which resulted in flica’s sophomore, Nocturnal, being released under Tokyo-based indie label Schole. It was during the transitionary period between his sophomore and third album that flica started delving into a darker and emotional ambient sound.
The resulting release, Telepathy Dreams (self-release), was a decidedly different approach to music making than the previous album. More focused on sound design-based compositions, the album was the maturity point of flica. This was also when he met and collaborated with visual artist Fairuz Sulaiman. flica, being a designer by trade, an audiovisual person himself, was inspired to incorporate more visual elements to his live set – creating a sensory synchronisation in sound and sight.
In his current incarnation, flica is a combination of ambient electronica by way of oriental mood, or as he put it himself; “an Asian sound with experimental element.”
// Dae Kim //
In a subjective world of music, what makes an individual musician outstanding is their ability to influence others emotionally. Dae Kim has a distinct sound. Half the time it’s hip hop, and when not, it’s fuzzy, lush electronics, communicating love and longing. With his witty commentaries during his live shows, He can be a fun dude as well but he is quite susceptible to sappy tendencies as well, just take his debut EP, ‘
// Shuzhen //
Shuzhen hails from Johor Bahru, Malaysia. She started composing music since 2009, collaborated with various artists for albums, films, animations, and dance performances. Her debut solo live show was in the recent JB Arts Festival, 2016.
Being a classical trained pianist, her works mainly focus on piano sounds, but has since evolved into experimental/electronic vibes. The melodies of her music are simple but yet delicate. Most of her works are inspired from her emotions from within, which are rare to be revealed.
