-Comment

- hans fjellestad(Director of "moog")
"baiyon lovingly tortures childhood memories with red-hot iron tweezers; dishing up nasty lunchtime nutrition that energizes body and soul with super fuzzy pop sound; you can live on it."

- stephan mathieu (Orthlorng Musork/headz)

"Like a school on lunch time" bursts off your speakers like a blast of joy -
Crunchy tunes in the key of 1 and 0, Radio ga-ga, frickin' punk rock! Just enough to make your day.

- Carl Stone

"Baiyon has found his own unique sound world to inhabit, and I enjoy visiting there. Check out "atin" and "multistory parking" for extra fun and frolic, and enjoy the grit, grime, crackle and crunch."

- Christopher Willits (12k/Ghostly International/PLOP)
"Delicious, crunchy snacks of salty/sweet melody."


-Participating artist profile

-Baiyon
Starting his career around the year 1998. Working under 4 different names; Baiyon, Conceal, .nes, DJ me/two, also leading a graphic unit called Wet Side. In the name of Baiyon, he focuses on monastic experimental sounds that remind us of our childhood. He was only the artist from Japan featured on a documentary movie "moog", alongside Stereolab, Tortoise, the provided track was played in part of the opening and ending. As Wet Side, he was involved with CANADA vs JAPAN LIVE PAINTING EXPO, taken place at Canadian house, EXPO 2005, then followed by Spring Reverb Festival at San Diego, a US & Mexico tour, plus an Irish party DEAF (at Dublin, the artists including Goldie, Akufen, Galaxy to Galaxy). He has kept the heat on here and abroad.
He's also set up a his own label called Brain Escape Sandwich Rec.(b.e.s.r.), connected music with graphic/image/product design to show his independent way of looking at the world.

-Nihei Tsutomu (A manga artist, "BLAME!" "BIOMEGA" etc.)
With an overwhelming scale of his touch of mega structure, and forth dimension-brain speed-cut up-designs of time & space, his hard-core SF comics have been smashing through the pop culture of manga, highly acclaimed across the sea, various genres, already sold well more than 100 thousand issues. He has been appreciated by a well known French "Band De Cine" artists, Enki Bilal (for God*Diva/Tykho Moon), a movie director, Guillermo Del Toro ("BLADE", "HELLBOY") is also one of his fans. Nihei Tsutomu's sublime world is no doubt unprecedented. Please check his recent series "ABARA", on a Japanese magazine called "Ultra Jump".

-Matic-log (Scratch Builder)
Plastic art (figure, SF blop etc), graphic design (manga, CD jacket artwork), drawing performance (of live paintings), editorial products (on culture magazines & mangas), or any coordinates & produces mixed up with all those art forms. Genre, skill, budget, community... all possible materials are used to express something has a shape, but with no longer looking for "real being", he's scratch-building in response to their vibes...

-Masaya Nakahara (Hair Stylistics)

A Mishima Prize winner no to mention here in Japan, who won the 14th Mishima Yukio Prize with "Arayuru Basho Ni Hanataba Ga" (In English translation "flower bouquet everywhere"). Working on Daisy World, the label launched by Haruomi Hosono. The genius creates music under the name Violent Onsen Geisha/Hair Stylistics, also is known as a film critic.

-Doseone (anticon)
anticon is the artistic underground Hip Hop crews from the most strange other world, proving their capacity just not falling into Hip Hop scene. Doseone is one of the core parts, MC/ vocalist working as Themselves, Subtle etc.. His poetic world of the extremely original flow strikes you with the intelligence and beauty that "common" Hip Hop music has never obtained.
