Shintaro Haioka is a man who is deeply in tune with his cultural identity. Inspired by traditional Ukiyo-e art -- a style that roughly translates to "pictures of the floating world"-- Haioka offers a distinctively Japanese take on modern electronic music, and one that rationalises the past with the future, and his nation with the world.
He supplements his digital compositions with live koto and guitar and the result is airy and deliberate, delicate and decisive. His string of EPs for the German label Emerald & Doreen brush up against a wide variety of styles -- from ambient to dubstep -- while never abandoning their point of origin.
伝統的な浮世絵からインスピレーションを得ているというHaiokaは、近代的なエレクトロニック・ミュージックに独自の日本的な解釈で取り組み、過去と未来、自分の祖国と世界を繋いでいる。彼はデジタルな楽曲に、生の琴やギター、フィールド・レコーディングを加え、優雅でデリケートながら意志の強さを感じさせる音楽に仕上げる。ドイツのレーベルEmerald & Doreenから発表しているEPの数々ではアンビエントからダブステップまで、幅広いスタイルを取り入れているが、そのすべてにおいて原点となる場所がブレることはない
