Open Reel Ensemble - KAI-TEN-RYO-KOU-KI

Composer Ei Wada and four musician friends, Kimitoshi Sato, Takuya Namba, Yu Yoshida and Tadashi Yoshida, formed the Open Reel Ensemble in 2009. Their unusual music is generated by mixing sounds from old rolls of magnetic tape on open reel decks, with computer-digitized samples, frequently including guitar & bass licks, percussion, their own vocals, old CRT TVs and even a vacuum cleaner as sampling sources.

Their latest track 'KAI・TEN・RYO・KOU・KI', with vocal from Tavito Nanao, features a gorgeous painterly animated music video, directed by ShiShi Yamazaki.
