Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Masayoshi Fujita is a vibraphonist and composer based in Berlin. Being influenced by classic, jazz and many other kinds of music, but not following ordinary vibraphone play style and theory of composition, Masayoshi seeks his own sound of vibraphone, and new possibility of it.
He makes also unique and beautiful sound using bows (for string instruments), strings of beads and other objects on his vibraphone.
The music he makes has very unique atmosphere and suggests images and stories to the listener.
Under his electronic solo project alias, el fog, Masayoshi combines the vibraphone and analogue/digital electronic sound and textured noises using divers experimental methods.
El fog's music is inspired by electronic music, jazz, dub, hip hop, classic etc…, and also the silence and deepness of the fog and the mountains and the gravity within.
