From the album "Tasogare to Piano"
by Rimacona (Parade)
Video : Yuki Hayashi
Rimacona consists of two members: Natsuko Yanagimoto (vocalist and photographer) and Marihiko Hara (pianist and composer).
They are based in Kyoto where Marihiko, in particular, produces music for theatre performances and people involved in the field, such as visual artists and traditional Japanese instrumentalists.
In addition to a short tour of Europe in 2009, they have also been included on Mille-Plateaux's 'Click and Cuts 5.0' compilation, of which they were the only vocal band on the album.
"Tasogare to Piano" (Piano in the Dusk) is Rimacona's first full debut album.
Their music is dynamic yet sensitive, with a strong emphasis on progressive song development and the sounds of piano.
Furthermore, their arrangements offer a unique atmosphere, and blend vocals with natural sounds, as well as electronics captured via the use of a tape recorder.
Rimacona's music goes beyond the boundaries of electronica, pop, jazz and so on.
