Faneca Music:

"Touch, light, sound: the sensation of these three senses flowed like an electric shock the first moment this instrument was picked up by saxophonist, composer and electronic producer Shoko Igarashi.
Three senses sublimated into art by a single electronic device: the Yamaha Tenori-on.
Pieces composed by layers and repeated sequences intricately, and sometimes simply channeled through the musician.
A single note becomes one song just as many small fish can gather to become one big fish: simple but complex. Sequences which gradually morph into new realities."

Artist bio:

"Shoko Igarashi was born in 1991 in Yamagata Prefecture, Tsuruoka city, Japan. An accomplished tenor saxophonist, she is also a versatile flautist and plays alto and soprano saxophone fluently. She has already made her mark as both an arranger and a composer. Shoko grew up surrounded by dreamlike landscapes of abundant nature in the snowy countryside of Tsuruoka, a mysterious and surreal region renowned for producing the best quality rice in Japan, where she says, “the water and the air feel the purest,” and where mountains and shrines overflow with ancient mysticism.

After beginning her musical career in Tokyo, she attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she graduated with a bachelor's degree of music. She then relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she began regularly performing live alongside innumerable talented jazz musicians. In 2018 , she moved to Brussels, Belgium.

Since 2018, Shoko has written and compiled a series of well-crafted, colorful electronic songs curating diverse influences such as Sly & the Family Stone, Earth Wind & Fire, Japanese City-Pop, '70s jazz fusion, and the anime film music that she grew up learning to play. Her nimble and seamless assembly of these very different elements into her unique sound is astonishingly natural."
