Tadashi Kumihara "hyoi" CD

The guitar's diverse sounds accelerate freely through the digital grid space of computer technology. And the overwhelming expressiveness and presence of the physical act of "playing".
From hard-steel minimalism to otherworldly miniatures, the music is written in a completely new idiom, inviting listeners to new dimensions of guitar expression.

Tadashi Kumihara, who was active as a guitarist for Gunjo Gakurayon and participated in Ryuichi Sakamoto's controversial work "B-2 Unit," has left a strong impression that goes beyond the framework of his group, but due to the small amount of activity he has been talked about as an "unknown genius," this is his first guitar solo work. The full picture of the unique music he has been making, sitting alone opposite a computer and spinning sounds without being known to anyone, is now revealed for the first time.

The physicality of "playing" and a diverse range of sounds
The method of producing music using a computer is a new possibility in this era where the same music production environment as in a studio can be easily created at home. However, what is particularly noteworthy about this album is the diverse expressiveness and overwhelming presence of the physicality of "playing" the guitar, a "direct, physical device" that is different from that of electronica.
The digital space constructed by this algorithm is freely sliced ​​up by Kumihara Tadashi's guitar, producing a wide variety of hard-edged sounds, and the tension of their "uniqueness" and depth of texture far surpasses that of electronic sounds; moreover, the music is free from all styles (from rock to free jazz) and is unique in that it does not belong to any category or genre.

A sound unlike anything else
It's amazing that Tadashi Kumihara has continued to create such unique music that is unlike anything else. In today's world where we are drowning in a sea of ​​information, it is extremely difficult to create the sound you want to weave. He is truly a solitary guitarist.
-Ryuichi Sakamoto
