Yosi Horikawa, SPRYK & three oscillators
28 July 2019
Savage Bar & Kitchen
Yosi Horikawa is a Japanese producer whose sound truly deserves the adjective original. Born in Osaka, Yosi first started making music at age 12, recording music in his bedroom using his voice and various other found and made sounds - tapping on the side of his bed soon became a kick drum. Overdubbing across two tape decks, Yosi started on his own musical journey in a style that continues to define him today.
The music Yosi makes draws deeply from these early experiments by bringing unusual found sounds into his compositions, sounds which often form the core of his songs and give them a truly unique organic quality. Whether it be birds chirping in the forest, the everyday sounds of a city or even the noises your kitchen utensils make, everything is a potential sound source to Yosi.
Tejas Nair has been making music under the aegis of Spryk for just over the past three years. Post his training as a sound engineer, he has spent most of his time developing scores for video games, VR experiences, and apps; spatial audio, binaural sound, and more broadly speaking, the world of electronic music production is the context of his exploration. Having done a number of DJ sets over the years, this performance will mark his first live production set to a public.
